Happy Water Colour

Hello dear readers, I hope today finds you well.

Today's card uses the Happy water colour stamp set from the new spring mini catalogue.

Here's the card we're going to make;
The sentiment you see come in with the Happy water colour set.

You will need;
Happy water colour stamp set
Coastal cabana ink and card
Basic black ink

Take an A4 piece of coastal cabana card and cut it in half along the long side (at 14.9cm) This should leave you with two pieces measuring 14.9 x 21 cm.
Take one of these and fold it in half creating a C6 card base
Take a piece of whisper white card and cut two pieces measuring 14.4 x 10 cm.
Take another piece of Coastal cabana and cut two pieces measuring 13.9 x 9.5cm and another whisper white and cut two pieces measuring 13.4 x 9cm.

Take one piece of white 14.4 x 10cm, coastal cabana 13.9 x 9.5 cm and white 13.4 x 9 cm and matt and layer these together and add to the inside of your base card.
On the piece of whisper white measuring 13.4 x 9 cm that you have left, stamp out one of the flowers from the happy water colour set in basic black ink.
Over stamp your image with the paint mark in coastal cabana ink, work your way down your image.  Do not re-ink your stamp as you want the paint mark to gradually fade.
Ad your sentiment to the bottom right hand corner of you card.

Now matt and layer this onto your remaining coastal cabana and whisper white card and add to the front of your base card.
