I made this background the other day after watching the lessons from the Onlinecardclasses.com Watercolor for Card Makers class. I hadn't used this stamp from the Crafter's Meow set Potted Garden and it was calling my name. I used Distress Ink markers and I learned a bit doing it that I put into practice the next time, but I though this was one was good enough for a card anyway. I added the sentiment and cut it out with my Stitched Journaling Card die from Lawn Fawn. I then used a little watered ink to brush the edges.
For the card background, I used some pretty paper from the Polka Dot Party 6x6 paper pad and some Queen & Co. baker's twine with some pop dots for my watercolored picture.
