Happy Mother's Day ...

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the Muse Challenge #164 that showcases the  Bear with Flowers and Mother's Day Sentiment from Great Impressions Stamps.

I stamped the Bear with Flowers on Watercolor Paper with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink then commenced with watercoloring the image with my Marvy LePlume Markers, pallet, paintbrush and water. To get the darker brown color for the Bear I also used Vintage Photo Distress Ink for my watercoloring. Using one of my circle dies I outlined a half circle and added the sky background around the Bear with Flowers. White Liquid Pearls was applied to the center of all the flowers.

I stamped the Mother's Day Sentiment under the Bear with Flowers and added the ground cover. This is the same sentiment I used last week. I'm sure you are looking at the sentiment and wondering why it looks so different. Well ... I have a tendency to cut my stamps, and that is what I did with the sentiment as I wanted it to be one line.
