Mojo Monday meets Friday Mash-up!

Today I have a card I designed for two challenges:  Mojo Monday and Friday Mash-Up.  I used one of my favourite new products from the Spring Catalogue to do it:  the Secret Garden bundle.  Here are the challenges:







And here is my card:


Mother's Day card for MO|JO281 and FM97

I love this stamp set and coordinating framelits!  It is so easy to stamp and cut flowers...no fussy-cutting required!  To colour the images I used a technique I saw on a card by fellow demonstrator Karen Barber that I'm calling Crafty Watercolouring (don't know what it's actually called, but I kinda like it!).  We are going to be learning it at my techniques class tonight...I think my attendees are going to love it! Here's a quick how-to:  emboss flower images in white on Crumb Cake card stock.  Fill in images using an Aquapainter and Whisper White craft ink.  Once ink has dried, colour over top using markers and blend with an Aquapainter.  So easy and so dramatic!
