Yay! It’s that super fun week when the Mint Owl Studio design team gets to share cards made using the new release! I’m showing you a card using the Love For Mom set. The set features some flowers in a vase as well as some single flowers as well as some beautiful sentiments for Mother’s Day. As soon as I saw this set I knew I had to do some water coloring on the flowers.
Here’s a look at the card!
I started by stamping with Versamark ink on some Canson water color paper. I used Simon Says Stamp white embossing powder. I LOVED this embossing powder. It’s the first time I’ve used it with such a fine font, and it really delivered!
Next I used a handful of Distress Inks to paint the flowers and background. I wanted a really loose look so I made sure my colors went past the lines of the flowers. I splattered water on the painting once it was dry to give it the bleached distress look.
When my painting was dry I used my stitched rectangles to give it a decorated edge. Then I mounted it on a card base and added some of the iridescent sequins from Mint Owl Studio to give it a finishing touch!
I hope you liked the card today! There are truly some great stamps in this release. This is one of my favorites, but seriously they’re all adorable!
