The card I'm sharing today is one of the set I made for Mother's Day. I had a couple of last minute requests from those who shall remain nameless ( but they are related to me!).
My Mum loves it in Provence and so I decided to dig out my Serendipity stamps which I was given a few years back as a birthday present. I covered some white card with Antique Linen and Scattered Straw DI then stamped the image with black Memento ink. I then added some shading with Pro Markers, but didn't go too mad as I wanted to keep the image looking shabby. I cut it out with Nestabilities Wonky Rectangles. The flowers are all cut from an old book using Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and I've touched around the edges with Barn Door DI.
The french sentiment is from a Katzelkraft set of stamps called French Quotes. The papers are all Basic Grey and the letters are cut using the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Sizzlet die. I stamped over the top of the letters using a Crafty Individuals stamp and then blended Tea Dye DI over them.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges :
- My Time to Craft - Mum's the Word
- Fab 'n' Funky - Shabby Chic
- Stampin for the Week end - For Mum / Mother's Day
- Allsorts - Bloomin blossoms
