I bought this stamp set because I really liked the sentiments for inside cards, however now that I have used the flower with watercolors it is so pretty that I like that too!  This was my first time using watercolor paints but it turned out to be easy.  This is what you want to use if you are looking for a light-color look to add to your stamping.  I also actually like how the watercolor makes the paper curl a bit, giving a beautiful added dimension to the images.

Now “Hop” on over to Melinda Everitt’s Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the Beloved Bouquet Stamp Set is only available through the end of January!
