This one's for Mum !

For my Katzelkraft DT project I've taken the opportunity to make a card for Mother's Day as it is fast approaching ! Apologies for only one photo but for some reason the other one I took wouldn't load, not sure if it's blogger or my lap top !

The stamps I've used are Les Partoches d'Onirie and Mode. I've stamped the background with the text stamp then the next layer has been stamped with the music stamp but I've masked off part of the area. On top of the music I've used a mask and Dusty Concord DI and torn the layer in parts to reveal the text below. The main image has been stamped with black Archival Ink and then cut out using the Fleur de Lys Nestability. The hat was slightly larger than the die so I used the outside the frame technique. The flower is cut from Crinoline which has been coloured with Distress Stains and Distress Inks and the brad is a Marah Johnson. The ribbon across the centre is seam binding that has been coloured with Dusty Concord Distress Stains and I sprayed it with water to make the colour a little less dense.

All of the stamps I've used are available from The Craft Barn in the UK or from Katzelkraft in France.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
