Hello everyone! AmyR here with my first post as a Design Team member for Honey Bee Stamps!

I couldn’t resist using the Zen Bouquet stamp set and coordinating Zen Bouquet Honey Cuts Dies. I decided to challenge myself and only use 3 Distress Inks to color with – Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon and Mustard Seed.

For my first 2 cards I did more traditional watercoloring with the inks and a paintbrush. All those colors were achieved with the 3 Distress Inks I just mixed them together on my palette.

For my 3rd and 4th cards I did the traditional Distress Ink “smushing” with the leftover inks to create this fun splattered look with the floral bouquet.

I used the large floral bouquet stamp on the insides of all the cards as well – just inking it up with the 3 different colors and misting it lightly with water before stamping.

To see how these cards came together check out my video below:
