Mother's Day Watercolor

Hello Everyone,

For today I am playing along with Cupcake Inspirations, Creative with Stamps, and The Paper Players. How can anyone resist butterflies. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Watercolor using an eraser as a stamp to create a bokeh effect.
Colored stamps with Distress Ink misted it with water.
Some images, like the leaves, had to be diluted even further.

 Close up and side pictures of the card.

Oh my! Mother's Day is right around the corner! So it is time to start making up my cards for the special women in my life. I have always celebrated Mother's Day as a day to celebrate women who have impacted my life greatly. These women would be my Aunt, Cousins, Sister, and yes, my Mother. If it weren't for them I wouldn't be who I am today and for that I am so grateful! Thank you...

That should do it for me! Thank you so so so much for stopping by. Have a great day and until next time take care!

All the best,
