Watercolor and Embossed Flowers Cards

Here are two cards similar but with different sentiments.

Sentiment:  Best Mom in the world.

Sentiment:  Wish you the most beautiful day.

This is watercolor with embossing with lavender and blue paints and paper.
These are part of a watercolor project for three different cards.

A peek at the messy watercolor process before trimming:

Something Big Encouragement Card

This is a card going out to my daughter for working so hard in college and having big dreams.

She always knew she could do something big.

This little girl is adorable and she goes perfectly with the sentiment.
I just love the sweetness of it.  But I had to make it with more of a grown up style.

Someone Like You Rose Card

Today I am sharing a rose card with a mix of watercolor and stencil work.

Some people make you laugh a little louder, smile a little brighter & make life a little bit happier. {some people like you}

The roses were stamped then a touch of watercolor was added.
The background is distress ink and a stencil.

I snapped some photos along the way during the process.

Birthday Balloons Celebration Card

A birthday card that sparkles for today.

Sentiment:  It's your birthday.  Time to celebrate.

This is filled with colorful balloons.
The balloons are made from stamps meant to be tree tops.
When I saw the photo challenge below, I saw balloons and I saw these tree tops as the perfect shapes to make them with.  They are decorated with tiny flowers.  The strings were hand drawn.

I added a vellum cloud embossed sentiment panel and glitter for the balloons.
