Special Reason watercolour effects

Try this… 

Take the largest daisy image from the Special Reasons stamp set (SU) and color three different colors directly on the stamp. I used Cucumber Crush in the center, So Saffron on the inner petals and Flirty Flamingo on the outside petals. Then using your Stampin’ Spritzer, mist the whole thing really well. (I probably misted it too much, but I do love what happened next!)


This picture (above) isn’t the greatest, but maybe you can sort of see how it turned out. I simply stamped that big flower image three times on three separate pieces of Whisper White cardstock. Each time I stamped I breathed an “Oh-h-h-h!” to myself! Watercolor does that to me every time! You just NEVER know what it will surprise you with.
Using those three images, I created the following cards. See what I mean? From bright and happy to sweet and soft! They cover all moods.
And don’t you LOVE how that stem die from the Special Reasons set creates a gorgeous negative space?! I just love everything about this set!

You can buy the stamp sets, framelits, ink pads & papers along with many other supplies on my site below. And while you’re there don’t forget to look at the calendar and see which of the upcoming monthly classes work best for your schedule so you can learn how to make this card!!! /
