Made with Love

Hello everyone!
Happy Wednesday!

I couldn't resist making more cards for Mother's Day! Will continue that series.........! Lol

I am inspired by this color palette and pretty flowers form Calling All Sistahs!
And luckily able to combine with Butterfly challenge too!
I picked up hot pink, hunters green and pinch of harvest gold color with heat embossing and a butterfly from the spin!

The flower image is stamped in Jet black ink and quickly heat embossed with clear EP. I inked up my pretty flowers using Zig markers- Pink, red, marigold, dark green and light green and fussy cut it carefully. Colored the edges using a black calligraphy pen.

I  tried to create a fusion here. Dry embossed the background using my doily die keeping it neutral in color. I dry embossed a strip of green color PP too using the same doily but this time I distressed the raised area using a scrubber, love the end result with all textures.
On a white strip stamped the sentiment. Die cut a leafy flourish too. And arranged all the elements using a big doily in the centre.

Added a cute tiny charm with a sentiment made with love tied in a double shade twine! Rub some silver Inka gold on the charm to highlight the sentiment more.

Finished it off with few sequins, a cute flutterby in hot pink and a dewdrop.

Supply list

Cardstock: Heavyweight Coconut white CS, off-white color CS and a snippet of bright red CS
Pattern Paper: Snippets from DCWV The Mariposa stack from Itsy Bitsy 12"x12"
Stamps: Rose bud mini from Mudra stamps, Sentiment is from Altenew Hibiscus stamp set
Dies: Priscilla doily and flourish#4 from Cheery Lynn designs and small flourish from 12 Flower frenzy set from HOTP
Punch: a butterfly punch from Jag
Zig clean clear real watercolor brushes
Archival ink: Jet Black
Embossing Powder: Clear EP from WOW
Inka Gold: silver
Metal charm sentiment: Crafters Corner
 few sequins and a dew drop from my stash

Would love to combine with other challenges as well: flowers+ watercolours +gold (metal charm and twine is dual shade white and gold) PP+ bright colors+Moms Butterfly -because these insects live in areas of land and deserted e.g. they are not our pets we cannot keep them in cages or human houses but trees, water and jungles! So they came in wild category inspired by pretty roses in the cupcakes!

I love all the details of the card. The flowers are amazing. The embossing on the green card reveals that the paper is surface-colored, which allowed for the amazing effect of two colors. WOW! Beautifully designed card !!
Thank you for playing with us in Happy Little Watercolor Stampers.
