Slightly moisten the watercolor paper using the water painters. Randomly brush on some of the three colors to your preference. Make sure you use enough water.
Once dry, adhere this to the Basic Black using Tear & Tape.
For the splatter, put a drop of the Calypso Coral ink refill on a stamp block. With a water painter that is wet, rub it around the block with the Calypso Coral. When there is enough ink on the brush, hit it against your finger to get the drops on the paper. Repeat if necessary.
Let dry completely.
Stamp the large dahlia on the watercolored background. Make sure it's well inked.
With the dahlia bud, stamp a few flowers iaround the edges with Calypso Coral.
Wrap a strip of ribbon on the front and use glue dots to adhere it to the back.
Adhere this to the card front.
On a piece of Basic White, stamp the sentiment in Calypso Coral. Cut out with the Stitched Rectangle die. Adhere over the ribbon using dimensionals.
Cut about 3 additional inches of ribbon and tie it in a bow around the ribbon that is already on the card.
