First impressions: Altenew Watercolor Wonders

Good Friday to ya!
 I simply swooned when I first saw the images in the Altenew Watercolor Wonders many possibilities for making impressionistic blooms!
When the set arrived in the mail I felt intimidated and just looked at it for over a week:/ I hate when that happens.
But, last night I dove in, threw caution to the wind and stamped at will!
It was rewarding to see what came from each layer. And in the end I was pleased with the outcome.

Here are two cards I made from the reckless, care-free stamping session:)

 I started with more Summery colors.

And ended with Autumnal bliss!
I used an image from Golden Garden for the background panel.

I  encourage you to to get those stamp sets out that are sitting there intimidating you.
 and JUST start Playing! 

Have a GREAT weekend!

Both cards are embellished with various sequins, 
border dies, and Clear Wink of Stella,

The colors and layers of the second card were inspired by this month's challenge at Altenew: Places Abroad, United Kingdom
