Happy Mother's Day

Hello All

A very Happy Mother's Day to all you Mum's out there!

A very special 'Happy Mother's Day' to my Mum-I love you dearly, thank you for all you do, for being my friend and for just being you xx

I don't have a Mother's Day card for you today but one I made that was initially inspired by the stunning photo at Just Us Girls.


I loved the colours of the butterfly and actually water coloured my butterflies as closely as I could to the one in the photo. It took a while with a tiny brush but I was really happy with how it turned out. I use Windsor and Newton water colour paints and mixed a few greens and yellow to match the shades in the photo. I also picked out the tiny touches of red/pink. It seems I am enjoying water colouring at the moment-it is quite relaxing! When dry it was all covered with WOS.

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches-loved this as soon as I saw it!

The butterflies are from Uniko and I will enter it into their Spring Challenge.

The wonderful sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays and I will enter it into their challenge No dies Allowed


I hope all you Mum's get very spoilt today and everyone else have a fun Sunday also

xx

  3. I don't have any watercolors but I do use my DI pads, gelatos and brushos as paint and yes, I find it quite relaxing too. Easier for me as I'm no marker blender expert. Fantastic layout, I'm sorry I didn't find time to give it a go. We've been outside this weekend, lovely spring weather and I'm planning for a holiday to lanzarote, I'm leaving on Friday, yay!

  13. I still think these butterflies are one of the best stamps from Uniko and with the fresh yellow it makes it a real sunny card! Hugs, Gerrina
    (mothersday here is in may; so strange that that is different in different parts of the world...)

  14. This card has wonderful spring feel and I love to see colored in images in your blog! It adds a lot of possibilities to using colors in your card making doesn't it, so much variety! The layout is superb as you always have. I tried some watercoloring in my second kit card today and although it does not look hideous I still find watercoloring hard -I'm so used to shade with Copics and when I try to kind of do the same with watercolors, the water doesn't not say what I tell it to! ;)
