Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge

Time for another challenge over on Isabella's Sketchbook challenge. As Mother's Day is coming up over in the States the challenge this week is to make a card for Mother's Day or in honour of your Mum. The image I've used is called Geraniums. Make sure you hop over to Isabella's and check out the other DT creations...they are fantastic, and of course there's a fab prize too !

I'm also putting this card in for the following challenges:

I made the background using Distress Inks in Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss. I masked off down the side of the card and used an Elusive Images stamp to make a border down both sides using Forest Moss Distress Ink. The swirly stamp is from a Winter Swirls stamp set by Hot off the Press which I stamped in Olive Green Stazon ink.

The image is shaded with ProMarkers and I've hand written the word Mum onto the tag. The two half circles are punched from Stampin' Up paper and then I've added the eyelets and the twine.

I hope you're having a good day and look forward to seeing your creations with an Isabella image.

Thanks for looking
