Alter The Stamp Images!

Hello friends!
I have fun project to share today. 
When I saw the stamp Barrels of Bloom from Penny Black, I was instantly intrigued.
I love the overall feel of this stamp. However, I already thought about extending the use of this cling stamp. If you example the stamp set carefully, you can change it up a bit.
And that's how I came up with today's design.

edited: in this card, I masked off the "water spigot" and stamped the butterflies instead.
I didn't know the term spigot. Thanks for making the first comment, Linda W..
you are appreciated -001

The butterflies from Soulful Silhouette fit perfectly in this scene.
Both Soulful Silhouette and Barrels of Bloom are available over Simon Says Stamp.
 I have been experimenting water-coloring/ink-smooshing more lately.
you are appreciated -002

I gradually added each layer of colors with Zig Markers and was careful not to use too much water.
The paper was just your basic white card stock (110 lb), not watercolor card stock.
you are appreciated

This actually took me a while to get the color and layering just right.
you are apprecaited

It is this artsy look look that I was going for.
Lastly, details, details....
you are appreciated -003

 I wanted to add that extra "something" to this colored image, so I took out the Dainty Dasher Dies and use only one part of the frame for dry-embossing.
I hope my card gives you some extra ideas on stretching your dies!

Brilliant masking and coloring. Love the addition of the butterflies but the star of the show is how you colored those gorgeous blooms.

This is very cool!! I am loving how you used the Zigs on this!!!

So very pretty! What a great idea to leave off the water spigot! Makes such a lovely pot of flowers. The dainty dashed lines on the bottom--really a great touch to your card.

Love how you changed the look of the stamp and the stage that single row of dry-embossing gives the basket. My eyes keep noticing things such as the ink blending at the top and another butterfly leaving the scene. It's a lovely card.

Nice way to change the look of the image. Great exchange of the water pump for the butterfly. Sometimes I get stuck in using the stamps just the way they are and pass on stamps that might work for me better with a small change.

Beautiful with the flowers and butterflies. I would call it a water pump or well pump.
