Mother's Day 2016 Series - Card 2
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
Welcome to day two of the Mother's Day series for 2016. I actually created this card a couple months ago for a friend who wanted to get a jump-start on the holidays for the year. Usually when I create a card that I really like, I'll post it quickly. In this case I decided to wait until the series started.
To create today's card, I began by sponging Tattered Rose and Milled Lavender Distress ink over the entire back panel. I used the same distress inks to sponge colour onto the tag.
I then used the same colours, but in distress makers to colour directly onto the flower stamp. I also added a darker shade of pink to add depth, and two shades of green for the stem and leaves. I stamped this in first, second and third generation on to panel. When doing this, you have to work very quickly otherwise the maker will dry on the stamp and your impression won't be clear. Immediately before stamping, huff on the stamp to add moisture.
I wrapped the ribbon around the panel and through the hole in the tag. I added foam tape to the back of the tag and put it in place before tying the ribbon in place.
I then mounted the panel on a dark pink piece cut slightly bigger and then on a lighter pink piece cut to the same size as the card base.
Finally I added a scattering of pearls to finish it off.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
