Happy Mothers Day

Just a very quick post to wish mothers everywhere a very Happy Mothers Day!  I have made cards for my two daughters and daughter-in-law, each one of them loving mothers to their families - and hope they enjoy their special day.  Here is one of those cards:

I have used Peony bouquet by Altenew for the stamp, which is a 3-4 step process.  I used one of the layers as a soft background panel, and used 3 layers for the flower.  I took advice from Therese (not given to me personally of course, but on a video tutorial - linked here ) and stamped the solid colour first, then the detail layer and then I could add the shading layer much more easily.  Thank you Therese for all your great hints!  I'm still using limited supplies, so made the most of the inks I had - a mixture of pink and red here.
