Happy Watercolor, Off the Grid

I love stamp sets that have stamps that add interesting background stamps. Happy Watercolor not only has cool dots, splotches, but beautiful flowers. I want to do this card again using the Monster Maniacs instead of the flower, I think this background will go great with that set. I have it coming in soon, so watch for that post. I also learned that to get a really good two tone on the splotch the new ink pads work better. The grid and dots are stamped off first, so give a softer image. I stamped the flower in Gumball Green and Midnight Muse using the ink pads, stamping the flower twice. I gave the outside flower time to dry before I water colored it in using the Aqua painter. I ruffled the ribbon and attached it to sticky strip, then added Stampin' Dimensionals, double layered on the other side. On the inside of the card I chose not to stamp off with the grid stamp.
