CAS Magenta "Bejeweled" Birthday

I had fun watercoloring my Penny Black "Bejeweled" stamp with my Zig Markers then misting with water and stamping directly onto my watercolor paper.  I found the best method was to use one color at a time then stamp.  Because I was  using my MISTI I could repeat each layer and get exact positioning.  I started with the magenta's using the lighter colors first.  After dry I  went onto the next layer.  I did the same with the greens.  I Loved the Watercolor results.

I finished my card with the Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Die Cut and STAMPlorations "Live Love Laugh" sentiment,  which I stamped several times using my MISTI.

What did we ever do without our MISTI's?

My card is for these challenges....


Now I need to go outside and play with real flowers :-)  Enjoy and Happy Stamping.
