Mother's Day Watercolor Rose Card

Watercolor rose

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?


  1. That card is absolutely beautiful! Hope you enjoy Mother's Day!

  2. Wonderful card!
