Using stamps

 Ok, so I've been on card making overload!
I made this card for a friend at work that wanted a mothers day card for her mother and
mother in law.
I made the "watercolor" paper using my distress inks, and then
splattering it with water.
It's definitely a technique to try!
The colors for the card I found on the Color Q challenge,
and I especially love that I finally got to use one of these great bow's from Freckled Fawn!
And I also got to use the Kraft cardstock for the card base!
The stamp is from Unity Stamps,
and the bow is brand new, and the ribbon is extremely old!!! As in I got it at an estate sale old!
