Stamp Review Crew: Mixed Bunch Edition

http://stampreviewcrew.blogspot.com/2014/12/stamp-review-crew-mixed-bunch-edition.html

It is the third Monday of the month, so that means it is time for another edition of the Stamp Review Crew! This time we are featuring the fun floral set, Mixed Bunch. Ah, flowers. The snowflakes of summer  :)
  If you are following along in order, you just came from Holly Krautkremer's blog. Wow, right!
As always, if you get lost along the way, you can always find the right links on the official Stamp Review blog, and click here for the post for this hop. If you have missed any of the past hops, be sure to go to the official Stamp Review Crew site and catch up!

 I was suddenly inspired to create a card by one of my favorite mugs the other day. I got the mug when I visited Pike Place Market while I was in Seattle in September of 2011. I love this mug. And I think this card turned out pretty cool too :)

There was sponging and water spritzing, heat tooling, and water dropping involved along with stamping and heat embossing right over the watercolor effect.

The inside needs some love too :)

One of my favorite inks to use with watercoloring is the Pear Pizzazz ink. It bleeds out into so many shades of green and brown and has this incredible earthy feel to it. The flowers were stamped right over the dried watercoloring in Pear Pizzazz ink.
Then heat set one more time and wiped really well with the Embossing buddy, and wet embossed the "hello".
