Happy Mother’s Day

mothers day 2016 group(click on photo to enlarge)

These are the cards I made for my close friends who are mothers. The “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment is on the inside of the card – I did not wish to cover up any of the watercoloring!

The image was embossed in gold, then I used my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens (I have the set of 12) to watercolor the image. I like to dip the pen in water to lighten the color. The tinge of blue background was done with an aqua brush.

Supplies: Stamp – Penny Black, paper – Canson watercolor, Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, ink – VersaFine Vintage Sepia, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens Blue (030), Brown (060), Carmine Red (022), Cobalt Blue (031), Light Gray (091), Light Green (041), Light Violet (081), Orange (070), Pink (025), Yellow (050)embossing powder – Stampendous! Gold Detail.
