Bloggers Challenge - Mother's Day

Bloggers Challenge #46 brings you loads of ideas for last minute creating of your Mother's Day cards.

Both of my cards use the Watercolor Distress Technique from a past issue of the TJNL. On the card with the Iris - after the Iris was stamped, I simply went back and colored in my image with Distress Inks and an aquapainter.

Details:
Stamps - Flourishes Siberian Iris
Ink - Archival Black, Distress Inks Weathered Wood, Peeled Paint, Concord Grape
Card Stock - Eggplant, Black, Vanilla, Celery








Details:
Stamps - Starving Artistamps Silhouette Flowers
Ink - Archival Black, Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Lavendar, Shabby Shutters, Marigold
Card Stock - Black, Vanilla, Olive, Orange








Wishing you all a lovely Mother's Day

Both are gorgeous, but I love that Iris! My Mom's name is Iris, but her card won't be adorned with one this year - wanna trade? haha
Beautiful work Lisa - TFS

These are both awesome cards, Lisa. I especially like the second one. I have some silhoutte stamps that REALLY need some attention. Thanks for the inspiration.

Lisa you are one of the few people who can create many cards from one set and make them all look beautiful! I usually use a set and switch to something else, lol! That may be why there are SO many stamps in my studio.

Both are simply outstanding cards. Beautiful work as always. I especially like the top card. Of course I'm partial to blue, but your WC Distress is amazing. Gorgeous....
