Welcome Spring Card- inspired by the Waffle Flower Challenge!

Happy Monday!  Today I'm playing along with this month's Waffle Flower Challenge.   We are focusing on watercolor this month and it has been so fun!  Here is my card:

This month's challenge is to use a watercoloring technique.  I grabbed the sweet Welcome Spring Stamp Set to use- I thought it would be perfect for watercoloring!  I stamped the grass out first, using two colors of green for depth.  Next, I stamped the tulip with Staz On black ink.  I watercolored the green using the darker green I stamped the grass with and used a pretty pink for the flower.  I used the lighter green ink to go over the grass with watercolor too.  I stamped the sentiment and then cut the panel so that the flower looked like it was hanging over the edge.

I used white cardstock to create my cardbase and then stamped the butterflies on the top portion.  I added some yellow watercolor in the same spots as well.  I splattered the watercolor all over the front of the card base and then added my focal panel with a bit of yellow cardstock and patterned paper to set it off.

The Waffle Flower Challenge runs through Friday of this week so if you have time and love watercolor, play along!  These new spring sets are just perfect for it!
