I have to admit this card just makes me so happy. I love the white with pops of color. And in case you missed my social media post about the process...this is how I did the watercoloring for this card:
I used Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, & Melon Mambo inks. Smoosh the lid into the ink pad before you open it. Then use an Aqua Painter filled with water to mix a little water into the ink & add your color (starting with the lightest color first) to the watercolor paper. You can emboss a greeting or images onto the watercolor paper first if you want, like I did here. Then after all my colors are added, I spritzed the paper with water to help the colors blend a little. There are lots of different ways to do this process, but that's how I did it for these cards. I love how they all look so different...
Then look at the fun finished cards:
And here are some pics of the details:
This stamp set, Amazing Life, is one of my faves in Stampin' Up!'s Occasions Catalog. AND...if you purchase it in the bundle (with the FABULOUS Rectangle Stitched Framelits!!!) you get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item--like the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that I used on this card. Another win-win!! 😀
