For Mom

Just a quick post to share a card I made inspired by the challenge at
The challenge is to use the sketch provided with a twist,

I tried a watercolor resist technique.
This was accomplished by first stamping the image with versa mark
and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Then I took a craft sheet and stamped 3 colors of ink on to the sheet and
spritzed with water. I took my white card stock and drug it
through the watered down inks. I was not happy with the white embossed image
so I need up going back and coloring the embossing with a marker.
I just wish my photo was better. But I guess you can't win them all!

I am also linking up to Simply Create Too where the challenge is "Monochromatic Madness"

Thanks for taking a look!
