Watercolor Wreath Mother's Day Card


Watercolor Wreath Mother's Day Card

Mother's Day has come and gone, but it's always fun to surprise your mom with a card any time of the year, right?! I'm featuring a couple of products from Scrappy Tails Crafts. I'll be using the Oopsy Daisy 6x6 stamp set and the Slimline Bird House pop up dies.  I may not be using them quite in the way you expect, but I love to get as many different looks out of the items in my stash as possible.
Let's take a look at my card and then we can talk about the process.

I was inspired to create a no line colored card.  I was just admiring the Oopsy Daisy stamp set while working on a different project and was struck by inspiration.

 I started by cutting a piece of watercolor cardstock down to a 4" x 4" square.  I inked up one of the daisy stamps in Ink on 3 Fadeout ink and stamped it on one of the corners.  I repeated it 3 more times until I had a daisy stamped in each corner.  I opted to use Distress Ink markers this time.  I scribbled them onto my palette and spritzed them with water.  This way I can control how light or dark the color turns out.  


I used Peeled Paint to color all of the stems, vines and leaves.  I used Dusty Concord for the flower petals.


I added a mix of Spiced Marmalade and Ground Espresso for the flower centers.  I also took the Dusty Concord marker and added back in some of the details that got lost.


 I matted the watercolor square onto a matching piece of purple cardstock.  I then cut some green cardstock using the scalloped window die and coordinating circle from the Slimline Bird House pop up die set.  I glued it right in the center of the flowers.  This helps to hide some of the messy bits where the flowers overlapped.  For shine, I splattered the entire panel with a gold spray.

The purple "MOM" was cut from the letter dies that came in the Slimline Bird House pop up die set.  The set actually spells out the word HOME but hey, it had the letters I needed!   I smushed my Versamark ink pad on the lower part of the letters.  Then, I sprinkled on gold embossing power and melted it with my heat tool. I love how they turned out!

They rest of the card came together quickly.  I glued the square panel on an off white A2 sized card base, added a stamped sentiment and a few accent stickers.  That's it!  I hope my mother-in-law loves her card!

Have a fabulous day!
