Do you know how to make this beautiful, watercolored card background?

In today's CASE the Catty project I am going to feature the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set which you can find in the Jan-June Mini Catalog. I am going to show you how to create the really cool background layer that you will see in one of the catalog samples.
Happy Hedgehogs set

Adorable hedgehogs mingle with flowers, butterflies, forest mushrooms, and birds in the Happy Hedgehogs set. Combine the images to create a playful scene to adorn scrapbooks. Or create a card to thank someone in your life for their kindness and friendship. It's so easy—stamp the line-art images on a card front, add the sentiment that expresses your feelings, and send!

You can bundle the stamp set with the Hedgehog punch for quick and easy card making:

I love one of the Happy Hedgehogs samples on page 64 of the Mini, a card that was created by a Stampin' Up! concept artists. If you look at the note under the card, it says "Create unique plaid backgrounds with Watercolor Painters".

So I thought I would recreate this sample with my own lil twist and show you how to create the watercolored background.

First, let's have a look at my creation.
