Clean & Simple Mother’s Day Card

  • Stamps – All Hero Arts: “Real Fuchsia,” “Real Field Wildflower” and “Mother’s Day Message”
  • BoBunny Back to Backs “Chiffon Dot” cardstock
  • Ranger Distress Stains and Inks: Peeled Paint, Dusty Concord, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold
  • Ranger Perfect Pearls Mist – Biscotti
  • Watercolor paper
  • Twine

I used a watercolor technique for this floral card, applying Ranger Distress stains and inks direct to rubber on two different stamps, then spraying them with Perfect Pearls Mist before stamping them. I like the way the inks blend, but don’t mix or produce muddy colors. And the mist gives the image a very subtle sparkle that binds to the ink (so it doesn’t rub off).

The sketch is the current FTL 180 at Clean & Simple Stamping. It works perfectly for the featured flowers, which are perfect for another OWH Mother’s Day card!  Hurray!  We are currently trying to make lots of Mother’s Day cards for the troops to send home to their moms, and that is our goal for this week’s Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown. Thanks for stopping by today.
