Muse Challenge #204 - Happy Mother's Day


Here's the card I made for this week's Muse Challenge, inspired by Jenni's pretty card:


I focused on Jenni's:
-Mother's Day theme
-floral element
-die cut

This is a big year for me (birthday-wise) and I set myself a number of goals. One of them was to expand my skills and try and make some videos. It's a BIG goal with lots to learn and lots of equipment requirements and I'm trying to go step by step. So today, I'm very excited to tell you that I posted a short video on my Instagram account to show my technique for stamping these flowers using watercolour paper that has been spritzed with water and various distress inks, and my MISTI.

I used:
-WPlus9 Watercolored Anemones
-WPlus9 Happy Trio die
-Simon Says Stamp Best Mom Ever
