Happy Mother's Day

I made this beautiful card for my Mom, Abuela (grandmom), Renee (FAV SIL), and MIL...The technique is called Floating Re-Inker Watercolor Technique. YUP, found out from Gretchen Barron there is a name for it and I cased this from her...Hers is HUGE and different colors...This is my first time making it so I think I did a good job...I had a GREAT Birthday and Mother's Day. How about you? Although Joaquin is sick...We have a doctor's appt at 10:50am today and Solimar may have Asthma...

Marisol,
I love that card. I have got to get some shimmery cardstock so that I can do it. Thanks for posting the tutorial link.
Yours is so pretty and you used my favorite stamp!!

You realize of course that you are an enabler! I thought I should attempt to stop or at least wean myself off these watercolor roses, but now I have to go make some to put in flower pots! Thanks for sharing!
