Not like me to be so organised, but here's my mom's Mother's Day card.
And not my usual CAS style either. It made a nice change to get stuck into some layers and making flowers. I even made the background card using a neglected stash item. Anyone else bought one of those Pearl Ex-Press Watercolor Pallette with lovely shimmery paints in duo and interference colours? I've had one for years and hadn't a clue what to do with it until I watched Sue from Imagination Crafts on QVC a couple of weeks ago using a similar product.
I just wet the paint and spread it across a square piece of card and let it dry. You can't see from the photo, but it dried lovely and shimmery. I then used the same leaf stencil I used in my last post but this time I used gold stencil paint. I also stamped a few script, dots and a kind of cross hatch (using Tea Dye Distress Ink) here and there with a couple of very useful small stamps I bought at the NEC years ago from LAXMI Design. I don't see them there any more so I don't know if they still exist.
I used my Cameo to cut out the fancy square and layered another nestie square on top after using the computer to do my sentiment - the font's called simply 'English'.
The flowers, butterflies etc. were made using various punches and then I found a tub full of old pearls and used those for the centre of the flowers and butterflies bodies.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for dropping by and enjoy the rest of your evening.
