A little water coloring

I started making a few cards for my coworkers, for their mother's for mothers day.
I've said this before, I really try to make exactly
what the recipient would love...
Even if it's completely out of my comfort zone!
So for this card I started with a piece of watercolor paper
I layed down some blues and purples...
And let it dry
then I masked off part of a Happy Birthday stamp,
so I could write Mother where the Birth part was....
The image was colored up using my copic markers.
I added the ribbon and the sequins along the side.
