Spring Stippled Blossoms

Hi Everyone!  Today's card is for the challenge I'm hosting this week over at the Friday Mashup.  This week we're playing with colors and a technique...

Use the colors "Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi & Perfect Plum".
Use "an Aqua Painter or a Blender Pen to create a Watercolor Effect".
Or mash it up with the "Colors above & a Watercolor Effect".

Since I haven't used the set Stippled Blossoms in quite a while I decided to pull it out, dust it off and give it another try. I always love how my cards turn out when I use this set.  I used the three colors, but did I give it a watercolor effect?  I sure did!  It's just a little hard to see in the picture.  After I stamped each of the flowers I used my aqua painter to blend the colors together.  Usually when I stamp with this set everything is very crisp.  It still looks nice, just has more of a blended effect which is what I was looking for.  After I blended the colors I let them dry, cut out the flowers and (of course!) spritzed everything with smooch spritz to make it shimmer. :)  Don't forget to visit us at the Friday Mashup HERE to check out what all the other designers made.  Their cards are fabulous!  Well, they are every week, but I loved what each of them did using this week's mashup.  Don't forget to play along to show us what you can create. :)

Oh, I almost forgot to add where I got my card design from.  Can't forget to mention that!  It's been so long since I've played along with a challenge I almost forgot ! lol  As soon as I saw this week's sketch challenge from the Paper Players I knew exactly what I was going to make.  It usually takes me a while to figure out what I want to do since it never seems to turn out on my card the way I thought it would in my head.  Anyone else ever have that problem? lol  For once that wasn't the case...whew!  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
