Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

Today I'm participating in the May Papertrey Ink blog hop.  
This month Nicole has chosen this photo to inspire us.
 I was inspired by this sympathy card of Heather's for my technique and stamp set choice.
I inked various stamps from my much neglected  Brushed Blooms stamp set using Orange Zest, Blueberry Sky and Hibiscus Burst - then spritzed each stamp with water and stamped them on watercolor paper.  I spritzed water over each stamping I did on the watercolor paper, then dried with my heat tool before moving onto the next stamping.  I over stamped the larger blooms and the orange blooms with straight ink.   I die cut GOD out of black card and black embossed the psalm -  both from Inspired: God.  I layered the watercolor panel to a slightly larger panel of Blueberry Sky and adhered that to a Vintage Cream card base.

You have all day today to join in on this month's blog hop -  I'm off to check out the other hoppers!
