Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there!  I thought I'd share the card I made for my mom today, using a technique I learned in Online Card Classes' Watercolor for Card Makers.  To get the cool watercolor background I used these Tim Holtz distress inks on acrylic blocks, mixed with some water.  The colors I used were picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, peacock feathers, and seedless preserves.  I then added a die cut that I made with my Cameo, using a cut designed by Kerri Bradford.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!!
