Good morning, today I am sharing with you my latest watercolour project. I promised myself that I would paint more this year and so far I am really enjoying it. Again this was another fantastic watercolour project step by step by Paul Clark over on his You Tube channel. I love painting nature and birds.

I thought I would share my latest make with you. I decided to make a head start on Mothering Sunday. I had a set of Pink Fresh stamps that came free with Simply Cards and Papercraft and wanted to use these. They are such a lovely set of stamps and sentiments. I wanted to make a really nice card for my mum for Mother’s day.
I used a pre-made 8 x 8 inch scalloped square card blank for the base, layered onto some raspberry coloured card, I stamped one of the floral sprays then coloured using Derwent Studio 24 pencils in shades of lavender and rose. I finished with sparkle pens. I fussy cut out the sprays and used some foam sticky pads to raise them for more dimension. I then cut a oval to create the vase and embossed this for some texture. I also foam mounted this for added depth. I drew a border with a black fine liner and added faux pearls. This was demonstrated in the magazine that came with the stamps. The finished result is a very pretty floral card.
