I started my card by cutting some watercolor paper down to size to fit an long and skinny card, I believe this is an A10 size card.

After I had my cardstock trimmed down, I stamped out the floral images from the SPRING WREATH stamp set, and embossed them in ALABASTER WHITE EMBOSSING POWDER. Since I knew I was going to be watercoloring this card, I went with embossing. This is a great way to do a resist-type technique that is so simple yet looks amazing!

I stamped my images on just the top corners, and then watercolored them using some AQUA PIGMENTS. I used the TURQUOISE and YELLOW GREEN colors. I applied quite a bit of water over my image before just dropping in a bit of the color with my watercolor brush. This helped the watercolor to flow and spread, giving me a soft and loose look.

I then added some splatters with the AQUA PIGMENTS, and also added some gold splatters with GILDED LIQUID ELEMENTS. I wanted to add some gold to tie in with my sentiment!

I used my SPELLBINDERS GLIMMER FOIL SYSTEM to add my sentiment. I foiled the letters to spell the word, MOM, trimmed them out, and added them on some foam adhesive. Then, I used the supporting sentiment, “you are amazing”, underneath. This sentiment is from the BUTTERFLY SENTIMENTS 2.0 stamp set, and I embossed it in GILDED EMBOSSING POWDER.

To finish the card, I mounted the front panel up on some FOAM TAPE and adhered it to a kraft card base. Love the simplicity of this card!
