.........and which one is your favorite???
The teamies of Simon Says Stamp and Show
want to know!!!

My favorites change with my mood.....which is ALL THE TIME!! so I chose not just a stamp but a collection....
Hero Arts ~ Real Garden Petals!! because my mood is ALL ABOUT green growing things!! 
Flowers.....Flowers and More Flowers.....

I created a Grungepaper Rose, a video tutorial is available, and highlighted it with Terra Cotta ~ Dimensional Pearls and colored it a Wild Honey Reinker Mixture, Wild Honey Reinker and Mini Mister

A little bit of stamping, some Rock Candy Distress Crackle paint and a Metal Corner....oh the BEAUTY.

I wanted to share a bit of a tutorial on "Watercolor Stamping"

I inked the stamps with Wild Honey, a bit of Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress ink. 

I mixed up some Pearl Water Reinker, Mini Mister, Perfect Pearl of choice (a bit heavy handed) and water.
Then I spritzed the inked stamps with the Pearl Water and stamped onto my paper of choice.

With my Heat it tool, I dried the image.

See the shimmery yumminess of the Perfect this technique.

So.......peeps.....pull out a stamp or two and HAVE SOME FUN!! 
Can't wait to see your creation linked up at 

YOU COULD BE A WINNER OF A..............

Love it!! I love the look you got with the water and pearls! I'm all out of the mini misters but have no fear! I can get more in Springfield next weekend. There's always lots of Ranger yummies there! Are you going?
Have a great rest of the weekend!

I agree with you 100% - Hero Arts stamps all the way, and I too am a flower lover, so it's always fun to see what they'll give us each year! Love your card!
