You Are The Best

What a neat sentiment to encourage a friend.  It's from a set of stamps with a matching die from Simon Says Stamp.

 And, it just goes with these colorful flowers.  I randomly stamped the flower stamp by Tim Holtz over a piece of watercolor paper using white ink and white embossing powder. 
 Next I took various Distress Stains and added the inks to the flowers.  I did spritz my paper first with water, that helps the inks run and mingle.  I can't get enough of playing with these inks like this.  After I added the inks here and then I walked away from my piece to allow it to dry.  Coming back to look at it is always magical!!! 
 I used the Colour Q combo to determine my colors of inks.
And, I used the retro sketch for my card layout.
And it also fits the Anything Goes Simon Says Stamp challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
