Bold Botanicals and Floral Trims Watercolor Mother's Day Cards

Hello Everyone!!!!! Today, I have a couple of cards made with the new Bold Botanicals and Floral Trims Stamp Sets from Tim Holtz and Stamper's Anonymous, that I am using for Mother's Day Cards, BUT really they can be used for pretty much any occasion that a gorgeous flower or flowers would be great for. I love that you can just stamp and color in these beauties, which made the card making really simple and fast too. Enjoy!

 I cut Watercolor Cardstock from Ranger to 3.75 x 5.25, and stamped one of the Floral Trims on the left edge lengthwise using Black Soot Archival Ink. I colored the flowers in with the Distress Watercolor Pencils and a Detail Waterbrush. 

On more Watercolor Cardstock, I stamped the two flowers from the Bold Botanicals Set using Lost Shadow Distress Ink so that they would have a more natural watercolor look. I colored these in with the Pencils as well. 

I trimmed around the Bold Botanicals with the Deckle Trimmer, and matted them onto Black Kraftstock, and then onto the right side of the other Floral Trims part. I matted this onto more Black and then onto Kraft Cardstock base cards cut and folded to 4 x 5.5 inches. I used a sentiment from the Thoughts Label Stickers, and then inked around the Kraft card with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.
