Mother's Day Card
by Sara Cook

Hi everyone!  I have a quick but stunning Mother's Day card featuring the Ruffled Blooms.  



Die the the Ruffled Blooms from Open Studios Watercolor paper.  Watercolor each bloom with the same technique of wetting the paper then use a lighter color ink on the inside to a darker color on the petal tips. Scribble the ink down on my glass mat and apply with a water brush.  The watercolors used are Zigs Real Brush pens in the following color sets; Bright Yellow and Light Carmine, Lemon Yellow and Yellow, Light Pink and fuchsia? (the name rubbed off and unsure what the real name is), and Orange and Wine.  For the center of each flower I use Bright Yellow and Dark Oatmeal.  The Dark Oatmeal I apply it direct on the flower center dabbing it in the cut pieces.  then blend with the water brush.  Shape the petals with your fingers.



Cut a piece of the light green from the Lush Green paper pad to a 3 3/4" x 5 3/4". Die cut the Jumbled Line Collage die from the center of the paper.  Cut the scraps of the paper into 1/4" strips and stack 4 tall and adhere to the back of the panel.  Cut a piece of white card stock to 3 1/2"x 5 1/2".  Cover the paper with the Sunset Blush Washi Tape.



Die cut the word MOM using the Twiggy Alphabet die set from a gold and peach paper from Vintage Pastel Mirror Pad.  Glue the smaller die cut on the top.  I added SticketIt to the back fo the peach mirror paper before die cutting to make it easier to adhere.  



Cut a card to 8" x 6" and score at 4" on the longer side of paper to create a 4" x 6" card.  Adhere the Washi tape panel to the center of the card.  Adhere the Jumbled Line Collage panel on top of the Washi tape panel.  Adhere the flowers in the lower left corner and MOM to the right of the flowers.
