OCC Watercolor for Card Makers

Day 3 & 4 
Watercolor Stamping

                            I used Distress Inks on PTI Meadow Greens stamps, misted with water, 
                           and stamped on watercolor paper. I wet a small round brush & gently 
                           washed over pink blossoms to blur slightly. PTI Wonderful Words: Love 
                           was stamped in Momento London Fog. This panel was adhered to a pink
                           card stock dry embossed with large dots Lifestyle Crafts folder and then 
                           mounted on a white A2 card with rounded corners on all layers. 
                           Inside stamped PTI Bold Bouquet phrase - "You're simply the best" 
                           to make this a Mother's Day card for my 95 year old M-In-Law.
