I used the Graceful Beauties set on my card as well as the Scalloped Circles die. I had a blast making this card using a water stamping technique (ink up stamp, spritz stamp with water, press down, voila!). It’s great because they take ordinary stamps and make them look like little works of watercolor art! Then I added lots of watercolor paint splatter for fun.

So there you have it! I hope you’re enjoying today’s hop (I know I love seeing what these talented girls have been up to!) and have a fantastic rest of the week!

XO,

Kalyn
