Sprays of Flowers

I wanted to use one of my new stamp sets so this is the card I created.
 I have used this technique before but I have been seeing it used quite abit so I wanted to try it again.  I stamped the flowers with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder on watercolor paper, then I added colors with Distress Stamp pads and Distress Stains until I liked the result.  I kept spritzing it with water as I added inks.  The stamps and the sentiment are both by Paper Smooches.
 I just loved how the colors mixed and ran with the water.
 This fits the photo inspiration challenge at Paper Smooches Spark

And the color combination fits with the Fusion challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
