Mother's Day

Hello again!  Recently I pulled out another one of the images from Susy's Mothers and Flowers Paintable Prints from Simon Says Stamp, this time with a Mother's Day theme.  I love the wreath of cute flowers and had lots of fun water coloring them.  The prints are on Tim Holtz water color paper, which is nice since it is a much brighter white than most water color paper.

A number of Distress Inks were used to color the flowers (listed below), applying 2-3 layers of ink to get the colors to really pop.  In order to have better control of the amount of water as I was coloring, I used a watercolor paint brush rather than a water brush.  After it was dry, the panel was adhered to the Royal Purple card stock base with foam tape, then Nuvo drops were added to the centers of the pink and coral flowers and Glossy Accents to all the dots that surround the wreath and to the centers of the orange flowers.  A few sequins, clear droplets and Baker's Twine were the final touches.

I'm joining the current Mother's Day challenge at Stamp, Ink, Paper and hope you'll use the link added below to head over there and check out all the beautiful inspiration!

Thanks so much for visiting!
