Give me a beautiful floral to colour and I’m happy and even better is when the stamp set is so well designed with a sentiment that is a perfect fit, well then I’m even more content! Mother’s Day has already passed here in the UK, but I couldn’t resist this new Mother’s Day set from Honey Bee, and I’ll tuck this card away to use for next year. Thinking of Mother’s Day around the world, I do particularly like that this set has Mama/Mom/Mum/Mommy/Mother which hopefully caters for everyone. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post.

I took a piece of cold pressed watercolour card and stamped the Mother’s Day greeting in the top centre of the panel in clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder. I then nestled the floral sprig underneath and stamped in Antique Linen Distress Ink; being a pale, water reactive ink, this disappeared as I painted.
I used Daniel Smith watercolours and mixed up a palette of:
- Blue/purple anemones – Ultramarine Blue with a touch of Quinacridone Rose
- Leaves – Undersea green with Lunar Black for depth
- Branch – Sepia
- Berries – Quinacridone Gold with Quinacridone Coral for adding a rose blush to the berries
Again, I do love a stamp set which has done all the work for you and the large floral sprig with a perfectly nestled sentiment in this Mother’s Day set from Honey Bee makes life easy! You can check out the other new products just released from Honey Bee here.
