Blue Happiness

I've always wanted to make a pretty "messy" floral background for my card. When I saw the challenge this month at the Flower Challenge is Focus on Background Stamping, I finally made up my mind to make the card.

I first water colored a soft subtle blue background on a watercolor paper, then I stamped varies floral images using different shades of blues overlapping each other and the music scores. To create the many different shades of blues, I stamped the floral images with first, second, and third generations of stamping until the inks were no longer visible. I also colored a couple of white floral die cuts with subtle blue inks before I glued them to the card.

This is a happy blue summer card! I am very happy with it!
