mother's day

i feel like flowers are to mother's day cards, like mustaches are to masculine cards. lol! i kept with that feeling with the card i created for the current 10 minute craft dash! the colors are absolutely perfect for flowers and mother's day cards. win-win!

so again, i came critically close to the time limit! and it was because i used some of my inktense pencils to watercolor in the images! first i stamped them and cit them out. then i watercolored the flower with pink and purple! i imagined a must more blended look when in my head. but time (and skill!) got away from me so it is what is! the leaves were colored with some green pencils.

the flower stamp is my cute stamps (ella's flowers) and the sentiment is lawn fawn's 'happy everything!'

i also blended the pink to the purple for the sentiment banner. stamped the sentiment on it, and then outlined the rectangle with a black marker. the awesome chevron/herringbone background is amy tan paper, and i LOOOOOVE the geometric background with large bold florals! this card here completely 100% inspired my card! i just LOVE it! 

so that's it!
