On Mother's Day Mum............

Good morning!

Thought I'd share a card with you today that I made for my Mother-in Law for Mothering Sunday yesterday.

Must admit, this was made a while ago now so calling on my memory banks to recall what I did with this one!!!

I only took the two photo's while prepping this one so I'll talk you through it as always.

This card started life as a piece of coated card stock (shiny surface) that I'd had great fun with using some spritzed Distress Ink and "swooshed" the card stock through on the craft mat.  Due to the very nature of the shiny card stock, the water and ink makes a wonderful effect when it "sits" on there - dried it off quite quickly to get some nice run effects.

The head image was then stamped (Indigoblu) with black versafine ink and as this is oil based of course, it wouldn't dry in a hurry so I covered it with a layer of clear embossing powder and heated to set it.

The butterfly border came next (Carabelle Studio) and was stamped again in versafine and set with clear embossing powder.

You will notice that I have stamped one of the butterflies on to some white copier paper, cut it out and pieced it on to that original stamped border to let that one stand out a bit from the rest.

The sentiments have been stamped from the Clarity Stamp alphabet and I had great fun with some stencils and some Indigoblu super thick slap it on and their luscious powders mixed in too.

Matted and layered.

Thought the colours on this one were really effective with such crisp and bold stamping.

Pleased with this one! (Hope she liked it too!).

Thanks for stopping by today,
Leanne xxx

  1. I'm sure that she will love it Leanne. The background effect is interesting and I really like the collection of stamps that you've used. I also like how the single butterfly stands out, that was a good idea. Hope you enjoy the week ahead. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
