1- With the Water Painter - wide brush tip, spread clean water all over the watercolor paper. Make sure the paper is well saturated with water, but not too much. When stamping, make sure the area you are stamping is wet, but not soaking.

2- Ink up the solid side of the large flower in Bumblebee ink, then add Calypso Coral with a sponge dauber to the center area. Stamp this in the top left corner. Then repeat with the small flower in the bottom right corner. Add more water if you want more bleeding effect.

3- Add water to wet the areas on the paper where you will be stamping the leaves. Ink up the solid side of the leaf image in Old Olive and stamp two on each side of each flower. Add more water if you want more bleeding effect.

4- With the Bermuda Bay ink and a Water Painter – regular brush tip, add the ink to the open white spaces of the paper. Don’t forget about areas in between the flowers & leaves and in corners. Make sure there are light and dark areas. Let dry. If you need to speed up the drying process you can use a heat tool.

5- Stamp the greeting on the scrap White Cardstock in StazOn ink. Cut out with a label from the Tasteful Labels with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

6- Leaving the paper in the die, turn over and use either small or large stylus from the Take Your Pick Tool run it around the inside edge of the die.

7- After the watercolor paper is dry, stamp the front side of the images over the coordinating areas with StazOn ink. Add to the cardbase with strong adhesive. 

8- Add the greeting with dimensionals in the center of the card. Add some Pearls around the greeting.

All Done!
