Flower card with faux watercolor technique

Here's a pair of cards I made a while back, but as the technique is so much fun, I had to share them with you :)
The cards look like I'd used tricky watercolor techniques on them, but instead I just played with some Fireworks! spray mists and did some simple stamping:

These are simple, easy and quick-to-make cards for all occasions!

1. Take off the cap from Fireworks! and Walnut Ink spray bottles and drop a few ink droplets on the craft mat.

2. Using plenty of water, paint the background with light pink Walnut Ink. Before the paper is dry, add highlights with vivid pink Fireworks! Let the colors mix. Dry with heat gun or let air dry.

3. Apply Memento ink of your chosen color on the stamp. Mist gently with water.

4. Stamp the images on the watercolor background. Let dry or dry with a heat gun. When using layered images stamp the lighter background color first before using a darker one for the upper layer. Dry each layer before stamping the next.

5. Dip a small paint brush in the Fireworks! ink. Tap the brush for creating small ink splashes on the background. Let dry. Stamp the sentiment, trim the card front to size, mat on dark pink paper, and adhere to card base.
