Happy Mother's Day

Today I'm sharing the card I made my Mum for Mother's Day. I used my Penny Black 'Together' stamp and the watercolour stamping technique...inking it with Distress Inks (Salty Ocean, Uncharted Mariner & Chipped Sapphire for the flowers, and Rustic Wilderness & Forest Moss for the stems and leaves), and spritzing with a little water before stamping on to watercolour paper. I heat embossed the sentiment in metallic gold using letters from the Paper Smooches 'Graffiti Alphabet', then splattered some watered down Distress Inks, and some gold Cosmic Shimmer mica pigment mixed with water. I distressed the edges a little, then added the panel to a kraft card blank.
