CTMH May Stamp of the Month "Friendship Bouquet" Blog Hop

Pin It Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we have over 50 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations on their blogs using May's SOTM, "Friendship Bouquet."  This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you have come here from Wanda Riley, you are on the right path! Here we go!  Here are the images in the set:

Below is the card I made using the stamp of the month along with a description of a new technique that I call "Spray Watercolor."  I love it because the water does the work for you by blending the colors together giving it a more natural watercolor look.  

Technique: 1) I stamped the sunflower with Black Stazon Ink and then colored most of it with Watercolor Pencils.  2) Then I simply just used my little spray bottle and saturated the Colonial White cardstock.  3) I placed it between a few pieces of paper and set a few books on top to flatten it out before I added it to my card.  The card base and background papers use the adorable Pemberley papers.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Great technique, gives it a pretty "soft" look.
