Happy Wednesday! Lisa, from Crafting With Princess Lisa, here  today with an easy water color technique using the Cherry Blossoms stamp set and dye ink refills.

Let’s take a look at my card:

I started by stamping and heat embossing the Cherry Blossoms image with white embossing powder on water color paper. Next, I brushed water over the entire image and began by dropping yellow ink onto the centers of the flowers, followed by pink on the petals, and green on the leaves. Once that dried, I dropped another layer of the same pink and green inks.

After die cutting the image with the largest of the Fancy Label Dies 2, I did a quick wash with blue ink while the image was still in the die. Hello, from Big Hello was stamped on a piece of patterned paper from the Vintage Floral Paper Pad, a strip of crochet trim from Crochet Trim Collection I, and a few random sequins finished off the pretty, feminine card.

Here is a close-up of the Cherry Blossoms image so you can see the two-tone look of the ink drop layering:

A coat of clear Wink of Stella over the entire image makes it super shimmery.

As I do not yet know for what occasion I will use today’s card, I kept the inside plain:

A sentiment can easily be added when I am ready to send the card.

Until next time…
