Watercolour Painted Harvest

Hi! Here's another card made with the Painted Harvest set - I'm obsessed. I didn't really have a plan when I started this one. I cut a panel of watercolour paper, and wanted to see how the stamps looked when using really wet ink and letting it bleed. I spritzed some red Brushos with water, plonked my stamps in, and stamped on the watercolour paper. It looked pretty, but lost too much detail, so I dried the paper, and tried inking up the stamp, then spritzing that with water before stamping. That held more detail, and looked really pretty. You can see those flowers behind the clearer ones. I dried the paper again, then stamped without spritzing, to just get a normal image. I love the watercolour background behind the clear flowers!

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:
