You've Got This

I'm still teaching myself to use Stampin' Up! new Watercolor Pencils and I'm using both the Blender Pen and the Aqua Painter.  For this card I used the Aqua Painter and Staz-On black ink.  I did stamp the image on Watercolor paper, as I find I have more control with it.  I also find, for myself, that if I remove the brush part from the water barrel, I have more control over the amount of water too, which is just easier for me, as I can dip just the tip into some water, if I need more.

I needed a card to send to our vet, who is going through chemo right now and I decided to send her this card.

To achieve the water color look to the background, I used some watercolor paper, spritzed it with some water and then inked up the Watercolor Wash background stamp with Blushing Bride ink.  I set it off to the side to let it dry, I usually let it dry overnight.  For the flower I used the Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive pencils.  When I was happy with my flower, I used a Dave's Die to cut it out with.  I popped it up on dimensional and I use some Basic Pearls to add to the background.  The sentiment is also from this stamp set and I use Early Espresso ink as well as card stock, which I mounted on Blushing Bride card stock for the base.

I really like how the Watercolor Wash stamp came out and will be using it more often now!
