Mother's Day

Meet today's card.
With Mother's Day quickly approaching, I wanted to create a Springtime card.
Playing with some new stamps from Penny Black.

I began by masking the edges of my watercolour paper, then placed my paper inside my Misti to stamp the Penny Black  Full of Glee flowers randomly with Archival ink.  I tried to stamp them around the outside edge of my card so I would have some white space left in the background.  
Next, I loosely watercoloured the flowers using my Zigs and let dry.
I stamped the sentiment from the Special Thoughts set using my Misti and clear heat embossed it.
I wanted to give my card a sunny feel, so I inked around the edges with yellow Distress ink and went in and did some stenciling with my drywall tape.




Adding my card to these challenges:
