Mother’s Day Art

Artful Flowers | by karen @ carefree creations

All my Mother’s Day cards this year are some form of watercoloring. This one uses one my favorite techniques – wet paper stamping. I wet the watercolor paper, stamp with ink – let it run, then, once dry, over stamp with either an outline or the original (but since it is dry it doesn’t run/bleed).

Thanks for taking a peek!
