You Are Amazing!

Another fun card to share with you...
 I went to the Freshly Made sketch and some great stamps from Avery Elle.  I am so in love with creating watercolor looks so this card is no exception.  I so love the way the Distress Stain color ran with the water.
 I took one of the image stamps, inked it each time with Distress Stain, gave it a spritz of water before each stamping and created a background with that image.  I then added a smaller image in a different color to the middle of each of those images.  Next, I used a frame stamp, inked it too with Distress Stain, spritzed it with with water and stamped it.  I stamped this great sentiment on the label and then cut out the label. The leaves were also inked with Distress Stain, stamped and then cut out with the matching die. I just love the resulting soft colors. The doily is from Martha Stewart.
Here is the Freshly Made Sketch.
