This A2 size card features the Falling Flowers Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.

I created this background piece by stamping Tranquil Tide, Mint Macaron and Balmy Blue ink onto my Clear Block F.   Then I Spritzed the block with water and placed a piece of Water Color Paper onto the block. You can get a lot of different effects depending on the amount of water and color you put on the block, and you never get the same results twice.  Let the paper dry thoroughly before proceeding.

The design is was heat embossed using the Embossing Buddy, Versamark Ink, White Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.

The word dies were cut from Tranquil Tide Cardstock using the Celebrate You Thinlits.

The top mat was glued to a Tranquil Tide Cardstock  Bottom Mat using Tombow Glue and then attached to a White Card Base using Tape Runner.

I used a Shimmer Spray across the whole top of the card for a nice added finishing touch, but its hard to see in this picture.

Here's another version using a mat sponged with  Highland Heather, Blueberry Bushel and a little bit of Old Olive Ink, Gold Embossing Powder, with a Congratulations sentiment from the August 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit "Blissful Blooms", cut with a die from the Petal and More Thinlits, and mounted on a Gold Foil Paper background.

And another version using the flower from Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set on a mat that I stamped with the Watercolor Wash  Stamp. I used several color inks:  Tranquil Tide, Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Emerald Envy.

Then I used a sponge dauber and the Emerald Envy Ink to color the white sections and give the card a more blended look.

The sentiment is from Blended Seasons Stamp Set.
