Now, are you ready for my creation? I made another Mother's day card and used a medium I have not used in a while.....my watercolor pencils. Wow, I almost forgot how much fun it is to color with watercolors. For my image I chose the Mother's Day set called "MOM" which was released at the beginning of the month.
Have a look
Paper:PTI White, Bazzill textured moss, Basic Grey Porcelain, watercolor paper
Stamps: ODBD Mom
Ink: StazOn black, VersaFine Onyx Black, watercolor pencils,
Accessories: Nesties Petite Ovals Large, Petite Scalloped Ovals Large, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Blender pen, Shimmerz Paint in Angel Wingz, Maya Road Vintage Pearl stick pin, silver heart button, Recollections half pearls, May Art super soft ivory colored ribbon, MayArts white crochet lace ribbon, foam tape, 3D foam dots
See, super easy. I also have a close-up picture so you can see the Shimmerz paint on that main big flower better
I just love the way the Shimmerz paint makes this flower pop.
