Happy 65th Anniversary!!

Happy 65th Anniversary to my in-laws.  Wow...such a great accomplishment. 

I am addicted to the look of watercolouring achieved with rubber stamps.  So simple, yet so effective.
I wanted a watery looking flower so I inked up my stamp by colouring on it with Memento markers in pinks and some purple, then sprayed with a generous amount of water.  I did that twice so I could cut a smaller panel to mount on the top of the larger one.  Stamped the sentiment on the smallest panel then pop dotted the whole thing to my card front. 

I am adding my card to these challenges:
CASology- #87 BLUSH
Addicted to Stamps- MAKE YOUR MARK

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you have a great week.

Supplies:  stamps- Hero Arts, Studio G/ Memento markers/ mini mister/ bl. Memento ink, pop dots
