Mother's Day Cards

Here are two Mother's Day cards that I just finished.  The main stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps, and the sentiment is a retired Close To My Heart stamp.  The first one is colored with Tombow watercolor markers:

Next I made one using Copic markers:

IRL the colors are a little brighter on the one made with Copics, but they both came out nicely.  My best discovery with these cards was Ranger Speciality Stamping Paper--it produced such a clear dark image.  The downside of that paper is that neither type of marker blended particularly well.  Here is a side view where you can see that the butterflies are popped up a bit:

Thanks for looking!  Comments are appreciated!
