The Painted Petals Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog comes in Wood Mount, Clear Mount, or Photopolymer.  There is also some really pretty Designer Series Paper called Painted Blooms , and a Spring Flowers Embossing Folder which coordinate nicely with this set.  If you have your occasions catalog, make sure to take a look at page 18.  The framed picture at the top of the page is just a piece of the Designer Paper.  When I first looked at it I thought it was stamped with the stamp set, which of course you could do and make any size frame, but how easy is that to just frame a piece of the paper.

Below is a video from Stampin' Up! that shows you  how to add a watercolor look when using this  stamp set, and some pretty samples too.  If you don't want to use a Spritzer to get the water color look as seen in the video, you could just stamp right from your ink pad to paper and still get a pretty image.  Experiment using both techniques to get the one you like best, or just to change up your design by using both.
