As promised, here's a card of my own design using the Awash With Flowers Stamp Set. But it's not just one card, it's a set of four! I purposely left them without a sentiment so they could be used for any Spring occasion ...

Ink: Classic - Early Espresso, Regal Rose, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Tools & Accessories: Punches - Eyelet Border, 2-1/2" Circle Extra-Large; Adhesive - SNAIL, Stampin' Dimensionals
Awash With Flowers is one of Stampin' Up!'s two-step stamps. Two-step stampin' is a simple technique. Here's all you do ...
- Stamp base image in VersaMark ink on any neutral cardstock. Sponge Stampin' Pastels over solid image.
- Stamp overlay image in VersaMark ink over solid image. Sponge pastels in a darker coordinating color, or even the same color, over the second stamped image.
- Color directly on the solid stamp image with a Watercolor Wonder Crayon.
- Spritz the stamp with water.
- Stamp the image on cardstock or watercolor paper. Wait for base image to dry, and stamp overlay image with coordinating color of ink.
- Use lighter ink for the base image and darker ink for the overlay image.
- Re-stamp the image one or more times without re-inking the stamp to get several shades of color from a single ink pad.
