I love playing with watercolors and when it comes to stamps, flowers are my favorite. For today's card I picked up the beautiful sunflower image from  "Sunflower Stem Cling Stamp Set" from the Classic Sunflower collection. I am in love with the way it turned out :)




I stamped the images on Canson Natural White Cold Pressed Watercolor Paper 300 gsm* with Old Paper Distress Ink. Then colored the images using Camel Student Water Color Tube* and Sakura Koi Water Brush*. I used the wet on wet watercolor technique and painted the flower and the background. I flicked some black watercolor to add a bit of splatter. Next I stamped the sentiment using All Occasion Sentiments Cling Stamp Set using Archival black ink and mounted the panel on a Hero Arts White Note card base using foam adhesive*.

I love how it turned out and I hope you like it too.
