Wild Flowers -Take 2!

Hello friends!
I am popping in with my 2nd post with Wild Flower. 
This was my first card that I shared a few days ago.
thanks for being there!  

This stamp set is part of the Simon Says Stamp's latest release Rest and Refresh.

As you can see, this Wild Flower Stamp Set is huge and can be intimidating. 
However, each of these two large clear stamps fits right into the Stamp-Positioner.
If you don't get the quite good impression, you can re-stamp again and again and again.
Gone are the days of wasted card stock.... those were my worries in my very early stamping days!

My 2nd card is not much different from the first. 
I am thinking of you today.

I did use a more watercolor-ish approach with Distress Oxide for this card.
Like my previous card, I took the similar route--starting from the lightest to the darkest and background to the foreground.

I am thinking of you today

The only difference is that each time, I applied Distress Oxide with a spritz of water
This was done on Canson 140 Lb Watercolor paper.
I am thinking of you today-001

This paper is the thickest watercolor paper that I own and it can withstand the amount of water without tearing up the paper.

I highly recommend stamp set like this to expand your creative comfort zone.
If you do not care to stamp as many layers as I do, you can simply stamp the image and it is just as gorgeous as a CAS card!  If interested, please use my Inklinz listed below for your stamp purchase and use the code "CRL898" and get a free Coral Reef Ink Pad!

Love them both! I really like the black font for the sentiment though... it shows up more!

Do like this stamp, it's very pretty. But I prefer take #1. It seems brighter and lighter, #2
seems heavy to me! Maybe that's the difference between using black and brown ink!
