Bright Welcome Card

In June, I entered The Dare2B Artzy Bold Colors Challenge and I won some lovely prizes. I selected The Home Sweet Home stamp set, which is fun and whimsical.

My mother-in-law just moved to an Assisted Living Senior Center and I wanted to make her a cheery welcome card so I started by embossing the homes, trees and sentiment in black.    Next, I picked out my favorite bright bold watercolor marker pens and started adding color.

This was my first time using Bristol paper but the watercolors worked great!  I am happy with the result and my mother-in-law has the card displayed on her book case.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
