Three Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets Not Retiring!

Once again, I've been in my "paper room" playing.  I seem to be a bit fixated on the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.  I allows so much creativity that I find it hard to resist.  Here is the card I made today:

I started with a technique that created the watercolour looking background.  All that I did was colour on a plastic bag with my Stampin' Write Markers.  Then I spritzed it using the Stampin' Spritzer.  This helps to spread and bead up the colours.  Lastly, I laid my piece of Whisper White card stock over the bag and smoothed over it with my fingers, holding it in place for about 10 seconds.  When I lifted it, I had my desired watercolour background, which I stamped over once it dried. (Yes, I was impatient and used my heat gun!)

I coloured the flowers with my Stampin' Write Markers and when I was satisfied, moved on the create the dragonfly.  It was fun and relaxing to work on this card and I'm happy with my results.
