  1. Cut Bermuda Bay cardstock to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2". Score at 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side.
  2. Stamp multi-leaf image from Painted Poppies stamp set randomly on card front with Coastal Cabana ink.
  3. Cut Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper to 4" x 3-1/4". Protect your work surface with Grid Paper or similar.
  4. Press Coastal Cabana ink pad directly onto the E-sized acrylic Clear Block. Mist the inked block with water using the Stampin' Spritzer. Let the water a ink combine for a few seconds. Carefully flip the block over onto the Watercolor Paper on a protected surface. To create a good watercolor wash, let the Watercolor Paper absorb the ink and water for about 5 seconds before removing the block. Set aside to dry.
  5. Stamp one full flower image, two side-view flower images, and three single-leaf images on Watercolor Paper with StazOn ink. Allow space between images so they can be die cut after watercoloring.
  6. Watercolor flowers and leaves with Aqua Painters using Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks. Allow to dry completely.
  7. Once the watercolored flowers and leaves are dry, die cut them with the coordinating dies from the Painted Labels Dies.
  8. Cut Vellum Cardstock with largest label die from the Painted Labels Dies.
  9. Adhere die cut flowers and leaves to the Vellum label with Mini Glue Dots and Stampin' Dimensionals.
  10. Cut Old Olive cardstock with swirl die from Painted Labels Dies. Cut die cut swirl in half and adhere behind vellum label and flowers with Glue Dots. Place Glue Dots where they won't show through the Vellum.
  11. Adhere watercolor wash background centered on the card front. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the flower and tag layers to the center of the card.
  12. Color one of the fuzzy yellow Perennial Essence flower centers with Jet Black StazOn ink to make it black. Use a mostly dry Aqua Painter to dab the ink onto the fuzzy surface. Let dry completely. Adhere to the center of the full flower image once dry. StazOn may stain the Aqua Painter, but it will not
  13. Stamp "thank you" greeting from the Beautifully Braided stamp set on 1-1/2" x 1/2" Whisper White cardstock with Jet Black StazOn ink. Adhere greeting to flowers with Mini Glue Dots or Stampin' Dimensionals.
