No Line Watercolor with PPP STAMPtember Pansies set

Good morning - I'm super excited to be sharing a card using the BRAND NEW exclusive Pretty Pink Posh STAMPtember stamp set - another beautiful floral set! I love Pansies - they were the one flower in my mom's flower beds when I was growing up that we were allowed to pick as many as we wanted of, since the more you pick them, the more they bloom! So I decided to play a little more with some no-line watercoloring - a technique that stretches me a little out of my comfort zone, but I think this is the happiest I've ever been with the result! Maybe I am learning? :)

I started off by stamping a floral cluster using some Antique Linen Distress Ink. I chose this since it is a nice soft color, and distress ink is water reactive, so as I painted, the lines would melt into my coloring and disappear - leaving me with the "no-line" look I wanted. I didn't spend a lot of time masking, just stamped them out, knowing my extra overlapping lines would be easy to make disappear with a bit of water.

And then I pulled out my Daniel Smith watercolors, and slowly painted and built up my colors - I love when I have time to just slowly paint and take my time! So very relaxing! 

Once I was finished and happy with the painting, I added some white paint splatters over the top and a sentiment from the recently released Fall Scene Stamp Set.  

Finished off with a Scallop Frame die cut from green cardstock and popped up with foam adhesive, and a few sparkly new Blue Lagoon Jewels that seemed to match my card perfectly!
