Goodbye to Upsy Daisy

Here's a card that I made for my Mother's Day Make and Take class.  I used a lot of retiring products for this last hurrah if you will.  One of my favourite stamp sets is "Upsy Daisy".  It is so easy to make a gorgeous card with this set....and the three sentiments make it really versatile.

For this card I used a technique that my friend, CB, introduced me to.  I selectively coloured the stamp using Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz and Melon Mambo and then spritzed some water on it before stamping onto Watercolour paper.  I really like the effect that it gives.

 On the inside of the card I used two more retiring sets, "Messages for Mom" and "Pocket Silhouettes".  In retrospect I should have used Melon Mambo ink for both sentiments.

These sets are only available until May be sure to get your order in to me soon to avoid disappointment.....once stamp sets are retired Stampin' Up! does not bring them back!
