Happy Mother's Day!!!

Hi Friends, 
Today I'm here with this beautiful card I recently made using some of my favourite craft supplies.

I started the card by stamping the flowers & leaves from Altenew's Persian Motifs stamp set on to a watercolour cardstock. For stamping I used Antique Linen distress ink as I wanted to try my hand on  no-line water colouring. This is my very first try on no-line water colouring technique. Once stamped I have used my kids unbranded watercolour pan set as I'm not into colouring. I have used shades of blue, green to colour the stamped flowers & leaves. In each flower I painted the alternate petals so I dont smudge the colouring. This way the outline of each petal is maintained even though it is no-line colouring and I could also create the depth effect.

Once the flowers and leaves were done I painted the background with shades of yellow. This further enhanced my flowers. I always wanted to try water colouring but used to hold myself as I have zero knowledge of it. But after finishing this card I'm confident enough to try water colouring again. To give a final touch to my water colouring, I splattered it with white and dark shade of blue. This gave a dimension to my colouring.

Now was the time to turn this painted artwork into a card. The sentiment used is from Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold & the Happy stamp set. It is stamped using Cobalt Archival Ink. Finally I added this coloured piece to a 4 3/4" x 6" white no card. To elevate the water coloured panel I have added 2 strips of navy blue cardstock on either sides of it. To jazz up the card I have added sequences matching the background from my stash.

I had a great time making this card and also I'm proud of myself for pulling the no-line technique so well in my very first try. I hope you guys too like it and do leave some love and suggestions in the comments below. Have a nice Day!!!

Love Gopi
