Just Because - Whimsy Stamps Water Lily

Hope you've had a good weekend so far! Mine was very relaxing and I got a lot of cleaning done.  I also got in some stamping.  My distress reinkers arrived and I was trying to practice with those.  I already have a few failed attempts, but I can see why some people use this coloring medium instead.

Anywho, I just can't stop playing with these fairies from the Whimsy Stamps Mythical Collection!  I don't know what it is about them, maybe it's their unique facial expressions, but they're just so fun to play with! Today I've used Water Lily.  She's such a gorgeous image, but unfortunately, I tried to do too much with her watering can and so it looks a bit messy around the edges.  I tried to do as much erasing as I could, but it just wouldn't go away and I was too lazy to recolor everything - sorry about that!  I used some mini roses here, which are also available at the Whimsy Stamps Store.
Stamp: Whimsy Stamps Water Lily; Ink: Copics, BIC; Paper: BasicGrey Lemonade; Accessories/tools: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, ribbon, mini roses, aster daisies, prima flower, rhinestones, corner punches
