Watercolor Mother’s Day Card 4

I was asked to help the 12 and 13 year-old girls in my church make cards for the mothers. I decided to use a watercolor medium. I printed this image from Sparkle ‘n Sprinkle called Beautiful Magnolia on Canson XL 140# Cold Press Watercolor Paper I created several card as example so they could make a selection on what they wanted to use for their mothers. This is the fourth example card.

This is another beautiful flower stamp from Clearly Besotted called Make a Wish, and I really like the purple color used. ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers 080 Violet, 044 Deep Green, 046 Mid Green, 050 Yellow, 036 Light Blue were used. I added some color at the base of a petal and then pull the color throughout using a watercolor brush and water. Once the watercoloring was dry I ran it through the Big Shot with the Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Rectangle Die. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back for added dimension.

The sentiment is a combination of stamping and die cutting. The stamped sentiment from Gina K. Designs Stitched Leaves was stamped on Gina K. Designs Base Weight Onyx Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder using Marvy Embossing Tool. It was cut into a then strip and 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape. One of the Mom words from SugarPea Designs Mom Words Die Set was cut from Tonic Gold Pearl Mirror Satin Cardstock and adhered to the lower right of the card and the sentiment was adhered above.

A side folding cardbase was made from purple cardstock in my stash. The focal image was adhered to the front with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. Doodlebug Designs Lilac and Pretty Pink Posh Sugar Plum Mix Sequins were added to the front and the card was done.
