‘Full Bloom’, the stamp featured on this card, will be a great stamp to use year round. The hanging blooms could be flowers or berries just by varying the ink colour or details added. I chose to make it in fall colours with a contrasting background. I inked the stamp with distress stains, spritzed it, then stamped on watercolour paper. I inked the ‘ever useful letter background stamp’ with purple stain, spritzed with water, stamped then painted over the script to spread the colour and blur the letters. The masking tape holding the panel left a white border when removed; I added a purple mat and die cut sentiment.

Beautiful! Love the delicate background and the colours are gorgeous xxx
Seedless preserves is one of my favorite colors and I love how it pairs with these shades of orange and green! Another beautiful autumn card!
I love the pretty mix of colours you have used on this pretty stamp Heather and the Seedless Preserves is a strong colour which combines beautifully with the softer tones of the orange and green.
Fabulous card! Extraordinary collaboration of color!
Where di you use the masking fluid?
Hi Patricia, I splattered a fine mist of masking fluid over the watercolour paper before I started. It resulted in tiny white dots on the leaves, berries and background.
New to card making, water colors etc. thanks so much!
