Two Mother’s Day Cards

OK this video thing is getting addicting! I have 2 cards here, both for Mother’s Day. One of them is for a friend’s gift exchange, another is for my own mom’s gift package, who lives out of town.


Card #1

For this card, I clear embossed the rose across the background and white embossed a single rose with a few branches. Then I sponge colored the single rose and leaves with distress inks and blended the colors together. I am really liking this way of coloring my stamped images. I can see how addicting distress inks can be!

Card #2

This second card I also used distress inks, but I watercolored instead.
