Some see a Weed.....

Sin City Stamps used:
from the Art journalling set    the sequin waste stamp
the Flourish stamp
The Dandelion and the sentiment come from the Dandelion Wishes sheet
Watercolor paper
Water spray bottle
several colors of stamping ink
acrylic paint misters in Yellow and Magenta
foam tape
Embossed card base (in black)

Step1: Spray water over the watercolor paper to prepare it for the use of the acrylic misters.
 The water allows the paint to flow quickly over the paper and mix with other colors.
Use both misters and move the paper around  to allow the paint run all over the paper.

Step 2: Repeat the process till you like the results.
Step 3: If your paper gets too wet with paint, just dab it with a cloth.
Step 4 : When you like the background, dry the paper using a heat gun, if it warps, don't worry it will be OK when completely dry.
Step 5: Make sure the paper is completely dry before using the stamps, otherwise the ink might bleed. Stamp the flourish using a pink ink.
Step 6: Add an impression of the Dandelion using a turquoise ink
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment with black ink.
Step 8: Use the  the sequin waste stamp and orange ink to give some more interest to the background.
Step 9: There was still some empty space on the bottom of the card, this was solved by adding another sentiment also from the the Dandelion Wishes sheet

Step10: Use foam tape to adhere the watercolor paper to the black embossed card base.
