VIDEO: Watercolored Freehand Florals with Kelly

Hello Crafters!
I am completely in love with this release, how about you? The first set to spark my attention was the Freehand Florals for sure. I literally could not wait to get some ink on those gorgeous flowers. I decided to pair it with another new set releasing tomorrow - Sending Hoping Wishing.
AVAILABLE APRIL 5, 2016

Freehand Florals
4x6" Clear Stamp Set
$15 USD

Sending Hoping Wishing
4x" Clear Stamp Set
$9 USD

Dawn did a tutorial on watercoloring with builder sets about a year ago and I thought this technique would be beautiful with the flowers in this new set. If you missed her video you can check it out here. it absolutely worth the watch :)
Speaking of videos I put together one for how I made this card.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube
I just adore the look of a graphic design mixed with florals. It makes my heart go pitter patter. They were just as easy to watercolor as I thought they would be but I love how it gives a look that appears to have taken hours.

Remember tomorrow is Release Day and all of these new goodies will be available at wplus9.com as well as at many of your favorite retailers! But we still aren't done showing you all everything, so be sure to come back tomorrow. But before we go, we've got a little more inspiration for you:
