One of the new Stampin' Up! stamp sets is Happy Watercolor.  I used one of the stamps from the set to stamp the colored backgrounds.  The colors I used are Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green.  I applied each of the colors to the stamp and then spritzed with water before applying it to the paper.  After the colors were dry, I inked the dots and stamped them over the appropriate colors.  I purposely stamped some of the dots to show on the white card stock.
Then I stamped the floral design using VersaFine Onyx Black ink.  When I was preparing the layers to add to the card base, I accidentally got a little water on the white layer.  Since it showed, I added a little butterfly dimensional sticker on top of the smudge.
I have more ideas for this stamp set, so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again.  If it is a set you think you would like, let me know and I'll order it for you. 
Thank you for stopping by today!

I have been stamping a pretty long time. I was around when the first Shadow Block stamps came was sad when they fell out of style.

I love your design and the colors make this pop!

STAMPIN' UP! - Varied Vases #6

The punched vases are from a 6 x 6 package of designer papers and for this card, I just left the flowers without coloring them. Thank...
