Layered Flowers

Happy Saturday!
Meet the card for today. 

This is a new stamp layering set I just picked up from Altenew called Watercolor Wonders.  
This set is beautiful and was originally inspired by watercolor paintings by a Japanese artist named Akira Mineeda.  
At first, I must admit that I felt a bit intimidated when I saw all the stamps in the set but when I saw the guide sheet included on the back, I started to play around with it and was pleased with the result.

I began with my usual heavy weight cardstock and placed it inside my Misti.  Following the guide, I started with the largest stamp, inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, gave it one spray of water and stamped.  
I repeated that process for the next 2 layers which were stamped with Picked Raspberry then Worn Lipstick Distress Ink.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Riley and Company that I have had in my stash but have never used with black Memento ink.

Adding my card to these challenges:
