Hello there! I wanted to stop by today and share a card I made for my mom. She doesn’t actually have it yet, but I know she reads my blog, so this counts, right? ;)
Dear Mom: I’m sorry I can’t be in Wisconsin to see you today, but know that I’m thinking about you all day long and and saving up my big hugs to give you for when I see you next. Thanks so much for being there for me and supporting me with every step I take, and comforting me when I take missteps and need my Mommy. You’re an amazing mother, and I’m so lucky to have you in my life. I love you so much, Mom! <3 Britta
This card showcases the brand new Spring Seasonal Distress Inks from Tim Holtz and Ranger. I have to say, I love these colors so much! I started with the plaid background by running some Neenah Solar White cardstock through my Sizzix machine with my favorite plaid folder. Then I inked the embossed background with Peacock Feathers with a Blending Tool and then sprayed it with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water in a mister to blend everything together and bring in some shine. This color just asks to sparkle. :)
The flower scene is one of my favorite Hero Arts stamps – K5586 Daisies colored with Copic Markers on my favorite Tim Holtz Die – Styled Labels. The curves of the label really shine against the straight lines of the plaid background. I love that contrast!
I hope you enjoyed the card for today and have a happy Mother’s day, whether that means celebrating with or thinking of your mother or being pampered yourself. Every mother out there deserves a big hug today! Thanks so much for stopping by. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new regular blog feature that I think you’re going to like. See you then!
