Yellow is such a Happy color

I wanted to use the CAS(e) this sketch for this week and since I picked this "happy" die from PaperTrey Inc, I just had to pick yellow for my main color. 
 I learned today that "smooching" is evidently a crafting term and that is what I did to create my simple background.  I tapped a few shades of Distress Stain directly to an acrylic block, spritzed that with water and then "smooched" the block onto my watercolor paper.  I love that it is really such a random way to add color and that so works especially with these inks and watercolor paper. 
 The flower is a multi step flower from Altenew stamps.  Again, another stamp that I really love and you can create your flower from any number of color combinations.  
 See the little specks of gold because one of the Distress Stains that I used is tarnished brass, a metallic ink.  
Here is the CAS(e) this sketch that I used.
It also fits the Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
