Here's another card that we did in the watercolor class last week.
We stamped the Blended Bloom stamp with Whisper White
and heat embossed it with white EP.
Then we wet the flower with clean water and dropped some
Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush reinker onto the wet petals.
The center was colored with Daffodil Delight reinker.
After the flower dried (and we had a good chat), we wet around the flower
and added some Pistachio Pudding reinker with a few spots
of Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight.
Stamped the sentiment and let the paper dry.
I find that stacking a couple of big books on the dry watercolor
works well to flatten it before adhering to the card base.
My friend Loll has a great tutorial on this technique.
I think this fits the Addicted to Stamps Challenge
A few days ago I posted a card very similar to this one that we did in the class.
I had a question about how I did the background.
Unfortunately, the person who asked the question didn't give me a way to answer her.
So I thought I'd post a similar card and give you a link to the

After teaching the class, I had several more backgrounds done
and decided to do one with black accents instead of white.
I can't decide which I like better.
Since I used a snippet of black for the butterfly, I'm sharing at
