SDC178: Color splash

Kaz Boughton is our hostess this week over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge:

I'd like to see some bright colors to cheer us up in the dim days of January.


I picked some of my favorite colors for this quick and easy card.  I watercolored the background paper with my Aquapainter before stamping with the Splattered Mug stamp.

I love this bird stamp and thought the corner looked a little empty so make some tissue paper flowers out of circles from an order I just received (and was so nicely wrapped).

Hope you will jump over to Stampotique Designer's Challenge and join us for the chance to win $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.
