Water Colour Mothers Day Card

I love making this style of card where I don't have complete control of what's going on and have to just wait and see where the colours are going to go and how they mix.
I stamped and clear embossed the letters before putting some very wet water colours over the top.  When these were almost dry I stamped the images in more water colours so that they blurred and spread out a little bit, then stamped over them again in ink for a slightly more defined look. I then added a bit of shading to the edges of the letters to let them stand out a bit. Finished off with a few sequins and a bit of (faux) stitching around the edges.
