Blue Skies card by Britt Bass featuring Authentique stamps

Blue Skies Watercolor card
Good day, people!  It is Britt Bass here to share a card using some new Hampton Art liscensed stamps, Hampton Art embossing powder, and a little watercolor!
I wanted to make a whimsical, blue sky for my card once I decided I would use this banner sentiment from the Authentique liscensed stamp set.  

I have recently purchased some twninkling H2O watercolors and thought they would work perfect! I stamped the clouds using the Bella Blvd. liscensed stamps and heat embossed with white Hampton Art embossing powder.  After that, it was easy to just wet my brush, add some watercolor, and do a nice color wash over the whole bacckground.  

A few die cuts for the sun, a notched banner and my sentiment -stamped in black Clearsnap pigment ink - and I called it done!
