Watercolor Plants

At my One SpecTACular Night on Aug. 28, we made 3 cards and used Watercolor Plants on all three. Only one card actually used the entire set (see this card), and the others just used parts of the set. Each card looked soooo different that no one had even noticed it was the same set. When I pointed it out, all 19 women there looked surprised. My plan to show the set's versatility worked.

The card below was a reject that I decided NOT to do that evening. I'm not totally thrilled with the card, but I like the idea for the main image so I think I just need to try again. The stamp set is Watercolor Plants. I used glossy paper and a Hydra Sponge to apply Palette inks in Orangerie, L'Amore Red, Moulin Rouge and Noir. The flowers are stamped in Noir on top of that, and I used Noir (stamped off once or twice) for the borders.
