s
You can find the entire collection here.

The stamp that I am featuring is Mandala Blossoms Cling Rubber Stamp
s

You can obviously "Just Add Water".
I wanted to achieve an inky design by using various ink color to make this very flat design super colorful!
thanks lovely (by V.Lu)

I started stamping the mandala image with various colors and then clear-embossed it.

Thanks lovely-001

I then applied the Emboss Resist technieu and added more colors within the Mandala.
I also stamp and cut out a mask and inked up outside the Mandala.
 Thanks lovely
For a change, I thought it would be nice to have colorful sentiment and that's what I did!
I am also sharing another "Just Add Water" card that I previously shared in my blog, in case you miss seeing it.

you are awesome

For this card,I stamped the image in top and bottom and inserted the white- embossed sentiment in the middle.
you are awesome-002
