Big Bold and Beautiful Floral

Hello friends!
I don't know about you, but once in a while, I do love big ,bold and beautiful floral cards!
Today's card is one of those!

I have been meaning to use this stamp set and finally used my scraps to create a bold and bright design.  The ink sprays from Altenew have been awesome for me to create my own colorful card stock. I shared the "secret" before and am gladly share it again....
you are the best-001

1. spray ink on watercolor card stock before going to bed 
2. go to bed and have a good night's sleep
3. the next morning, you've got some color paper waiting for you! 
you are the best-002 

Once you created your own color paper, it is up to you use them to your advantage.
I took an easy route for this card: just stamp the outline and die cut.
you are the best

My color paper may not look all that great, but I try to take bits and pieces of the card stock and turned it into something original and beautiful. To me, this is the joy of card-making.
you are the best-003

The sentiment from Folksy Flower Stamp
For the details, I added Tonic White Blizzard Nuvo Glitter Drops and splatter.

WOW Virginia, this is so beautiful. I have a ton of water colour scraps and needed some ideas so I love this.This really is a stunner of a card, well done as always. Love your advice to just spray it and go have a good sleep! LOL That's my kind of a little crafting and go take a rest and then repeat. haha
