I have a Mother’s Day card to share with you today. I’ve used one of Neat and Tangled‘s awesome stamp sets, some chipboard and enamel dots. I embossed a sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and opted for a kraft cardstock base for the card.
Friday is now my new designated La-La Land Crafts day. The theme of the week is Mother’s Day. Here we had our Mother’s Day back in February.
I’ve once again coloured up one of their stamps with the no-lines technique. For some reason I seem to prefer colouring their stamps that way. Who knew I’d ever warm up to that feeling! It’s a cool challenge, though, and I’m getting more and more confident with it. I added a little bit of texture to her skirt so it has a bit of a denim feel to it. You can find a link to the stamp and the list of colours below.
I’ve used some Maja Design paper to go with the background stamp from LLLC which I did in a matching purple ink. Isn’t it pretty?! I absolutely love it! The various dies are listed at the bottom of the post. The butterflies are just so pretty and I love that heart die! As I didn’t really have a fitting sentiment I could emboss onto the dark blue background, I simply just wrote it myself! That works, too, right?! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.
Copics used: (purple) V12, V15, V17, (blue) B93, B95, B97, (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, R20, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (heart) R22, R24, R27
The background has been made with Distress Inks, the purple is a regular one and the green is an Oxide. I simply couldn’t resist making my own sentiment because of the look on what I take to be the mother monster’s face. I love it!
