Stampin' Up! You've Got This - Mother's Day

  I was having more fun with this new sneak peek preorder set You've Got This yesterday.  My mom saw the card I was planning to give her for Mother's Day so I wanted to make a new card for her.  A new stamp set is a good excuse right?

  I really like Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder together.  The Cucumber Crush is a nice summery green and the other colors just pop against it.  I think my photo shows them a bit brighter than in real life, we can blame the camera on the phone rather than the photographer OK?

  I stamped the flower (is it a peony?) in Stazon on watercolor paper and colored it with an Aquapainter and ink pads.  After it was colored I spritzed the whole thing with some water and let it sit for a few seconds and then blotted up the excess with a paper towel.

  On the Cucumber Crush card base I stamped the background stamp that comes in this set.  Then I layered my sentiment banner, Very Vintage button tied with linen thread and a little scrap of Dotted Lace trim left from yesterday's project.

   Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
