CAS and Watercolor

It's been a very busy week, Bridal shower, visiting my sister-in law who's been ill, Not feeling quite up to par myself for a few days, crafting with my buddy Lynda, shopping for my Granddaughters 7th birthday, they grow up way to fast, a big Labor Day party Sunday and now I have to shop for a dress to wear to my Nieces wedding this weekend. What a crazy week!
Ok, now that I got that off my chest, I did have some time yesterday to relax and let my MOJO free.
I just got another shipment of fun in the mail and finally got some time to use some of it.

I played all afternoon yesterday and as a result I made four cards and started quite a few others.
My card for today is a Watercolor Stamped card.

Products used:

PB #40-452 Bejeweled
PB #30-353 Words of Kindness
Ranger distress mini ink pads
Ranger Archival ink
Ranger distress blending tool
Canson 130lb watercolor paper

These was an easy one. I placed my stamp in the Misti on my watercolor paper, where I wanted the flower, then closed the cover to adhere the stamp to the top. then using my distress markers, (Salty ocean, Tumbled Glass, Ground Espresso, Peeled paint and Forest Moss) I colored the flower and used the darker colors to shadow. Then I misted the whole stamp with water and closed the Misti, and pressed down. I love this technique and I use it quite a bit, using different amounts of water to get different effects.  I removed the stamped paper from the Misti and use my distress blending tool to add some Wild Honey distress ink to the right of the flowers. Then I selected my sentiment and stamped it using Archival ink. 

I will be entering this card in:          Love To Scrap "Flower Power"
