Mothers Day Card DIY with Mou Saha
May is special to me because of Mother’s Day. My mom lives very far away from me in India. But what I do today is influenced in many ways by her. So, here’s a card in honor of my mom and moms everywhere.
Now, let me show you how to make this card.
Use liquid glue to write the sentiment. I used Scotch 3M Quick Dry adhesive. Let glue dry completely. When it dries, it will work as a resist.
Color the card by rubbing gelatos in the same color range.
Blend colors with wet paint brush.
Wipe off the paints from the resist image gently with a paper towel.
Add some paper circles and stitch to finish the card.
Hope you get a chance to give your mom a handmade card this year!
A note from Katie- This card is so beautiful, and this technique would work great on everyday cards, scrapbook layouts, etc.
