Happy Mother's Day - Watercoloured Climbing Roses

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums - yes today we celebrate our dear mum's here in the UK.

I won't be seeing mine today unfortunately, but I popped a little (4" x 4") water coloured number in the post to her the other day which she will have by now, so I can share it here.   Watercolouring is not something that I find intuitively easy, but I felt it was something I really wanted to try to mark the occasion. 

I clear heat embossed the beautiful Climbing Rose image on some watercolour paper and used my aqua painters to gradually build up the colour with a selection of re-inkers.

It kind of looks a little rough and ready but I was quite pleased with the finished card.

Hope it's one she will keep.

Thanks for looking.   I haven't been in a position to craft or blog for some while now as I haven't had a work-friendly craft room for some weeks.  However, there is light at the end of my long tunnel now that it has all been painted and my furniture re-configured.   Now I am on the final straight and decluttering, so I hope to be back up to the speed next week.

Have a lovely day everybody - my thoughts are with my mum(s) today and with those of you who are missing yours for whatever reason.

Take care.
