Here is my card using this set. This card started as 1 sheet of white cardstock. I watercolored - resisted the background with splatters of colors and I stamped the flowers separately and water colored them with yellows. I added some funky green yarn and some pearls.


  1. So pretty, I love the yellow glad on the blue/green background.

  2. Gorgeous flower and lovely background too. Not quite sure how you did the background but it is so pretty.

  3. MariLynn- The resist turned out beautifully- what a great idea to use this technique!
