Watercolor Flower Fest Thanks

Flower Fest is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets. I don’t know why Stampin’ Up ever did away with such a cute set. The images look like doodles and they’re great for watercoloring, two card trends that are very popular right now.
My card today was inspired by this card by Stephanie. I used the smooth watercolor paper so that I could use my aquapainter to color the stamped images without the paper pilling up. I used reinkers with the aquapainter using Strawberry Slush for the flowers and Lucky Limeade for the leaves.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great day :-)

INK: Black stazon, Reinkers – Strawberry Slush, Lucky Limeade
PAPER: 100 lb. smooth watercolor paper, Whisper White CS, Strawberry Slush CS, Gingham Garden DSP
SS: Flower Fest, Happy Watercolor (sentiment and dots)
ACCESSORIES: Aquapainter, jewels-rhinestone

Love this card - am going to post it to Pinterest. Thanks for reminding me I could find the dots in Happy Watercolor. Dots are so in right now.
