Deep Red Stamps Forever Sweet and Kind Card

The background of this card looks plain but there's more to it. I inked the Ranger watercolor paper with the blues and purple distress inks to see if I could get them to blend together as well as those I see on YouTube. It's not a terrible job but I think I need to practice my technique of blending one color to a different color. Then I sprayed water onto the stamp

I placed the inked watercolor paper on top of the wet stamp to get the water on the background stamp to pull the distress ink color away from the design so the circle background now appears white on top of the colors.
 The design is more evident to the left side of the girl and I knew it wasn't the greatest but I couldn't throw it away. Then one day I pulled some things out and this card fell into place using the young lady from the:
Deep Red Stamps Formal Chicks

The rest of the card:
Stickers by Me and My Big Ideas (circle) and K and Co. for the words.
The die-cuts are also by K and Co.
The ampere stamp is by Lawn Fawn Jessie's ABC's and Hero Arts Tide Pool ink.

I used this stamp on this post:
Weekend Mini-Series

Thanks for looking

I gave it to a new friend of mine who is so sweet and kind. After I gave it to her, I felt like I needed to explain what I was trying to say which was, I hope you always stay, sweet and kind. It was also to say...I want her to know...well...whatever happens to our new group...I want her...I hope she will stay sweet and kind and be my friend.
I'm horrible with words. SMH
