Watercolour Wash with a Flourish

I've used 3 of our new In Colors on this card - Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum. I love how they work together, so I combined all 3 inks on one stamp. To get this effect, I used the Watercolour Wash background stamp. Turn your stamp so the rubber faces up, and ink Peekaboo Peach on the top third. Then, use some scrap paper to mask off the bottom third so you can ink the middle third in Flirty Flamingo. Then, remove the scrap paper to ink the bottom third in Sweet Sugarplum. Use a sponge to blend the areas where the colours meet. If you want an extra watercoloury look (yes, that is a word ;), spritz the stamp with water before stamping on Shimmery White cardstock. I like using the Shimmery cardstock for this because it takes water well and gives a subtle Shimmer to the whole card.
I added some gold shimmery spatters to my card using the Gold Wink of Stella Pen. To do this, just squeeze your pen until some ink starts to collect on the brush tip, and then tap the barrel with a bone folder to make the ink spatter.
I think the gorgeous die cut Flourish stands out perfectly on my background.
