I used the adorable and oversized Be Jolly stamp set from Create a Smile Stamps! aren't they so cute!?
the images were stamped and then watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. once dry, I fussy cut them out and added some white gel pen details!

I used Distress Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio and Twisted Citron to create the ink blended background. once I had the base layer done, I used the Fragments Stencil! loooove that stencil! 
once that was all done, I splattered some water on top. and when it was dry, I used the beautiful Snowflake Stencil and some sparkly paste to add the shiiiiine! lol!
