Mother's Day is coming up!

I have been creating Mother's Day cards, like crazy. It is, after all, the most important day of every year! I will feature Mother's Day cards all week!
I used our glorious Paper Fundamentals for the patterned paper, on this card. I matted with Lagoon and White Daisy cardstock. I tied things up with Lagoon Baker's Twine and added a Clear Sparkle that I coloured with our Shin Han Alcohol Markers.

For the watercolour piece, I first embossed a retired flower image on watercolour paper, with Clear Embossing Powder. I smooshed Flaxen; Glacier; and Sunset ink on my All Purporse Mat. I spritzed each colour with some water with a Spray Pen. With a paint brush, I just started to apply each colour in thirds, then let the colour move around as it wanted. Once the piece was dry, I spritzed it with water and added some more colour so it was more vibrant. I stamped the sentiment with Black ink, then overstamped it with Versamark. I added clear embossing powder to it, them used my heat gun to emboss.

All supplies are Close to My Heart, unless noted.
