Today I'd like to share the card I made for my wonderful mum for Mother's Day. She regularly looks at my blog so I couldn't post this until today!
This card is quite different from my usual creations. I experimented with a bit of splattering but still wanted to keep my card clean and simple and I love how this turned out.
I stamped the tulips with VersaMark and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. I then coloured them with my Daler Rowney watercolours. Once dry I then splattered some more paint in the same colours to add some interest to the white space. I cut down the watercolour card to the size of my card base and then used a die to create the stitched curve. This was just a stitching die, it doesn't cut an edge so, using my scissors I carefully cut along the length of the curve. I then stamped the sentiment. I adhered some co-ordinating patterned paper to my cardbase and then popped up the watercolour card on 3D foam.
