Recommended Blocks: 1" x 31/2" (Y1002) and 2" x 2" (Y1003)

Here is my card I choose to go simple but took an opportunity to do some water coloring and played with a knock out and used Monochromatic coloring for each flower.

I first cut out the shape/size out of watercolor paper. I laid out the stamps from the Dec SOM on the block allowing some to protrude off the paper sides. I stamped the images using the Archival Black Ink so the black ink wouldn't bleed when I applied the watercolor paint. I then proceeded to paint the images with the Watercolor paints.

I water colored each flower in Monochromatic (Different shades or hues of the same color) so one all the blues, the next all the yellows and then all the pinks.

Using the same stamp's on the same block I stamped onto the card base in regular black ink the image exactly as it was on the watercolor paper.I masked out the area I wanted to stamp the Sentiment "Thinking of You" I then filled in around it with the other flower stamps from the set. I popped up the Sentiment block leaving a slight border around it in white from where I masked off the area. I then adhered the water color piece directly to the card base lining it up with the stamped images below.
