for Mom

The challenge over at the Stars & Stamps mid-week throwdown is to make a Mother's day card. I had this Northwoods image colored for over a year and finally pulled it out to make a card for Mother's Day. This has already been sent to OWH, and can be used for Mother's day or just a card for Mom for any occasion. I always try to do a variety this way so that cards can be used for other occasions besides Mother's Day. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored it with Tombows and a wet paint brush. The image is so large, there was no need to add any other embellishments so I just put the Verve sentiment on.
Thanks for stopping by today.......I may have more later so stay tuned :)
