It's been a while since I played around with my watercolors, but Mother's Day seemed like the perfect occasion to get them out again. All I did was start with a blank card and a sheet of watercolor paper. I painted a rose in several layers, did a little hand lettering, and then simply cut and paste the painting onto the card.
I like starting with a blank card instead of making my own because I always end up with crooked cards that just don't look right :) I might end up adding a few more details like leaves around the edges in gold, but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I'm certainly not experienced in watercolor, but I like how malleable it is- even if you goof up, you can undo most of it!
I'm excited for Mother's Day this year - we are having my family over and cooking some tasty food out on the grill (Mom's choice!). What are you doing for Mother's Day?
