Summer's Bounty watercolor card

hello crafty friends,

Today I decided to work with some water coloring techniques, it was a lot of fun.  To the right side of the card I used a long stamp block that I inked directly with some of my small distress ink pads.  I layed it down ink side up, spritzed with water and layed my cardstock onto it and carefully rubbed the back to soak up a bunch of the ink water.  Then I layed it face up & I took the remaining ink on my block and rubbed it around the other areas of my card.  This one was just with plain ole white card stock.  After letting it dry a bit I decided to spritz the whole card front with perfect pearls mist.  It is so shiny and pretty in person.
The fun puffy Popsicles are stickers from recollections.  The Sun I made from a Spellbinder's Ironwork Accents Die-cut from a bright yellow card stock, I stamped the face using Peachy Keen Stamps Princess faces then chalked the cheeks in an orange glitter chalk.  I then placed the sun back in the die and spritz with perfect pearls mist.  I went around the edge of the inner circle placing dots of pink glitter glue on the sun.  I went around the outer edges with orange ink and bent each one upward a little to give more dimension.

The sentiment "Summer's Bounty" is from my stash of scrapbooking stamps I purchased long ago when I first started crafting, I don't know the maker of them.  It is stamped on a fun tag from Craftin Desert Diva's "Short & Sweet Tags" set which I edged in pink and orange inks.  I just love the stamped inner edging.
