Watercolour Blooming Meadows

I have a watercolour -y card to share today...using one of my favourite stamps...'Blooming Meadows' by Hero Arts. I started by inking up my stamp using 'Milled Lavender', 'Dusty Concord', 'Bundled Sage' & 'Forest Moss' Distress Inks...then stamping them on to a piece of card spritzed with water to make a blurry background. I then allowed the card to dry, before stamping over the top to get a clearer image. I distressed the edges a little, matting my stamped panel on to a piece of co-odinating scrap card, and adding a sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual).
