Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Basic White Thick card stock. 

Use a Clear Block C to position and stamp the brushstroke in the following order of color (flipping the stamp direction with each color):  Petal Pink, Terracotta Tile, Cajun Craze, Terracotta Tile, and Petal Pink. 

Use a Water Painter to flick specs of water onto the stamped brushstrokes. 

Dab the specs of water with a paper towel after they have set for approximately 30 seconds.
