Mother's Day 2016 Series - Card 9 | ft. Lawn Fawn Stamps
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
For some reason sunflowers always remind me of Moms. I don't know why. Perhaps because they are so bright and cheerful, and those are the best memories of Moms. Standing tall, watching over us and smiling down.
Last year every Mother's Day card I created had sunflowers. Those aren't available here, as I didn't start this blog until October of last year. If I do find pictures of them, perhaps I'll post them.
To create this card, I began by stamping the Lawn Fawn floral images with CTMH Archival Black ink on 140lb cold press watercolour paper.
I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to colour the image. Bright Yellow and Lemon Yellow for the petals, Deep Green for the leaves and the stem, Dark Brown for the centre of the flower and the pot was coloured with Brown and Orange to create a terracotta colour.
The soft blue halo around the flower was done by wetting the area and dropping in Tumbled Glass Distress ink and allowing it to air dry.
The greeting (also Lawn Fawn) is heat embossed with gold embossing powder on a strip of vellum. I added the ribbon down the side and the scattering of sequins to finish off the card.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own.
