Happy Birthday, Mom!

This is a card I made for my mom's birthday (since she loves orchids and I couldn't find any pretty ones with orchids on them at the store). I made 2 of them, mostly because I wanted to try out different techniques on different kinds of paper. 

The first one is made with Letraset Aquamarkers and Louvre Aquarelle Watercolors. The paper is also from Louvre. It's 200x125 mm (8x5 inches) 300gsm.

The second one is a thinner kind of paper. It's Panduro Watercolor Quality Paper Pad. It's in size A4
and 180gsm.I found that this paper did not go well together with my Aquamarkers. It was really hard to blend out the marker and you could still see some of the lines so I ended up just using the markers on this one for details. Lesson learned. The thicker the paper is the better the Aquamarkers will work.
