Time to play along at one of my favorite challenge blogs, Stamplorations where the themed monthly challenge for April is "Stamps and your favorite Technique".

I love playing around with digital images in my designs and one of my new fave 
things to do at the moment is a water colored background.

That is just how I created this card front, using Beccy's Place   images, "Poesy" and "Happy Birthday" which I laid out in my Cameo software and cut .
I went for a loose water colored effect on the flowers as well as the background with Distress Inks. This came together quickly and I love how it looks.
I added a few enamel dots by Stampin' Up.
This will also be entered in Beccy's April Challenge.

Be sure to stop by at both of these sites for a visit.


Thanks so much for stopping by.....Hugs......

I love washy water colouring too Patti, it always looks fabulous and is so much fun to do. Every now and then it's great to let it all go and get a bit messy. Well done!
