1 stamp 3 ways - whimsical watercolor

do you ever find yourself using the same crafting supplies over & over again because you love them so much? come on, it's not just me right? 

well i definitely play favorites in my craft room, reaching for the same stamps & dies all the time so i've decided to share some of my obsessive behavior. i'm currently smitten with the whimsical flowers cling stamp set designed by catherine scanlon. i love catherine's work so much and i find myself reaching for this set over and over.
this week i have created 3 cards using this 1 set in preparation for mother's day. here is my first card:
i was totally inspired by the amazing watercoloring of my friend amy lee, aka the craft bunny (check her out, she's so talented).

i stamped and embossed my flowers in white.
then i watercolored over the flowers with distress ink.
to create my sentiment, i stamped "you are" from the essentials by ellen totally awesome set and i die cut "wonderful" from black glitter paper and 3 layers of cardstock. i used my favorite quickie glue pen to adhere the "wonderful" words into s dimensional embellishment.
this weekend i'll show you 2 more cards with this awesome set.

thanks for coming by!
