Flowery Get Well wishes

I am playing along with the CAS(e) this sketch for this week with my card.  
 I love playing around with colors and supplies so the background piece for my card is the result of one of the playing sessions.  This piece had been sitting on my desk for some time and I knew I could make it fit with the sketch very nicely.  The die cut words are from Paper Smooches, I just cut them twice. 
 I started with a small piece of watercolor paper. This was spritzed with water and then I ran three colors of Distress Stain directly to the paper. I spritzed it again with water so the colors would run together.  When this was dry, I stamped the flower in black and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  
Here is the CAS(e) this sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Beautiful effect with the ink - will have to try that :) Clever idea about doubling up the die cut sentiments!

Oh wow! I love your watercolored background and the black flower on it and you put the sentiment die cut on the perfect place. Great card. Thanks for playing along at CAS(E) this sketch and hope to see you again.
