This was a card I made for my other half's Mum for Mother's Day last week end. I started with the background and blended Crushed Olive and Mustard Seed DI over white card stock. I then stamped the text from a Wendy Vecchi stamp set with Crushed Olive and also the small flower. I then used a mask and sponged Crushed Olive over it and finished by stamping another flower from a Wendy Vecchi stamp set in one corner. The two panels are made using the same Wendy Vecchi text stamp and for the top one I used the Paint Dabber resist technique. The tulip is also a Wendy Vecchi stamp and I stamped the flower head onto a piece of card that I'd blended Spiced Marmalade DI over and also used a mask with the same ink. The leaves are stamped onto card that had Crushed Olive blended over it and I've flicked some water to add some droplet marks.
The little tag is cut using my Quickutz and the word Mum is from a Dovecraft set. I've stamped around the edge of the tag with a Crafty Individuals stamp using some more Spiced Marmalade. The butterfly is cut from Grunge Paper that I've blended DI over and also stamped with the Wendy Vecchi text stamp. The ribbon is seam binding that I've dyed using Wild Honey Distress Stains.
I hope you get chance to join us for this challenge.
