Happy Mother's Day ...

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by Atlantic Heart Sketch #157 that showcases the  Spring Tea Cups and Mother's Day Sentiment from Great Impressions Stamps.

I stamped the Spring Tea Cups on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image with my Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. Once complete, I fussy cut the image out and layered it on the background I created with 3D Foam Tape.

I stamped the Mother's Day Sentiment on the tag, colored in the flowers to match those on the Spring Tea Cups and used my Tiny Attacher to staple the sentiment in place. After adding a bit of Lilac Twine I attached the whole panel to my card base, and then stamped part of the Spring Tea Cups on a coordinating envelope.
