Happy You are my Mom



Is anyone else completely loving the watercolor trend in card making right now?  I love how mixed media always finds away into card making.  For this card, I decided to use the Zig Clean Line pens.  I have found that if you apply color, then quickly add water in a small section, the type of paper that you use is less important.  But if you apply all of the color, then water...then you need a smooth water color paper for that.  It will blend much more easily.

I started by stamping the fox image with versa fine black ink, its permanent and is perfect for watercoloring since it doesn't bleed.  Then I colored in the image.  Using a MISTI tool, I stamped the sentiments.  The Happy Happy Happy Family add on stamp set from Lawn Fawn, is so great for cards that you plan on giving to a family member!

For more cards using this stamp set, head on over to the Lawn Fawn blog! Its the April Inspiration Week!
