Friendship Challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps

Today is the start of a new challenge at Rubbernecker Stamps. The theme is "Friendship" and here is my DT inspiration using "Field of Blooms" and "Freehand Border Phrase Set".

Field of Blooms
I used Stampin' Up ink in Flirty Flamingo to do the flower blooms. I sprayed the watercolor paper with water before I stamped it so it was slightly damp. After I inked my stamp, I also spritzed some water on the stamp right before I stamped the image. I held it down for about ten seconds to give the ink time to soak into the damp paper. I find that if the paper and the stamp aren't prepped with enough water beforehand the ink won't travel into the paper and give that watercolor effect. 

Make sure you stop by the blog and enter this challenge for your chance to win one of two prizes: a $25 gift certificate for 1st place, and a $15 gc for second place. Below are direct links to the stamps I used today. xx
