Watercolour Floral Card

So Mothers Day fast approaches and my husband asked if I could make a card for his Mum, I find water colours so relaxing to work with and decided to use a set of stamps by Helene Metivier. The outer matting layer border was made by a combination of a few of the stamps, repeated to form the complete border. The inner main design was made again by combining a few different stamps and using masking techniques to enable me to build up the effect of a group. I used a Versafine ink pad in smokey grey as I thought black would be too harsh for this watercolour card. The purple matting layer is made by using my Glimmer Mists in the Rum Raisin colour. A simple almost see through lilac organza ribbon added to the side.
