I’m in Mother’s Day cardmaking mode right now, and with my current watercolor obsession, it seems only fitting to marry the two. My grandma has always been a wonderfully supportive force for most of my life. She and my grandpa, alongside my mom, instilled in me a love of music and the arts from a very young age. They paid for me to have private voice lessons when I was a freshman in high school through my senior year, starting me on the track to my music degrees. They were my staunchest supporters at every recital, choir concert, and theater performance. I wanted to create a card for my grandma, who is now in a nursing home with dementia, that would brighten her day and hopefully remind her of how much she and her unwavering support means to me.
I started off with Ellen Hutson’s new set Bohemian Garden, stamping blooms and leaves around the edge of some watercolor paper with Ranger Archival ink. I watercolored the images with my distress markers, then added a color wash to the background. I stamped the greeting (from Ellen Hutson’s Amazing Women stamp set), then added some clear pico embellisher to the flowers to add some shine and change up the texture.
I hope you enjoyed this card, and I really hope that you aren’t getting sick of my watercoloring! I practiced yesterday, and I have lots more to share with you. 🙂
