Water Colors, Scrolls Work Stamps and a Little Teary...

I love this stamp from Scrolls Work Stamps. The momma smooching her baby... so sweet and for me a little sad. Next Month... MY baby turns ONE!!! And today, My Precious Ava lost a tooth. Father Time... You are KILLING me!
ANYWAY...about my card. Well...I wet water color paper with water and I dropper SU reinkers on it to get the soft and swirly background. While it was drying... I water colored the image that I stamped with STAZON because I did NOT want the image lines to blur.While THAT was drying (and drying can be sped up with a heat gun) I thought that my background needed branches, so I water colored them onto my background. Then I thought it needed flowers to match momma's kimono. I made 5 small dots in a circle with a water based marker and then I blurred it with a paintbrush and water. I added the flower centers with a white gel pen while they were still a little bit damp. I adhered my momma and baby and here is my creation. Thanks for popping in!

What a beautiful card! Father time can be rather cruel at times, huh? Enjoy your baby and cherish these moments. :)

Lovely card, a real work of art.
Yes, time does go by quickly and those babies grow up before you know. Bittersweet when they pass those milestones, I know.
