CardMaker Magazine is pretty phenomenal. Do you subscribe? CLICK HERE to check out their website. It's a great publication to keep your inspiration fresh and the crafty ideas flowing!!

I made a little something to share with you today. Have a look!


Here are the supplies from Lil' Inker Designs used to make this card:




I started by heating embossing this floral piece from my Corner Adorner Stamp Set onto watercolor paper which I then water colored with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. 


This was a totally therapeutic coloring session. It was freeing to be able to go right over the white embossing!


Then, I die cut my Mom word from silver card stock and added it to foam to make it pop off the page. I completed my sentiment using my Mom and Dad Sentiment Stamps. I'll be giving this to Mom for Mother's Day. 


I'm so happy with how this turned out and how easily it came together! I hope you like it!

Ok, I am actually the last stop on today's hop, but in case you came here directly below is the entire hop list so that you can go back and start from the beginning!
