Hello my friends. Today I'm back with my first mother's day card. At home this is always the 2nd Sunday of May. This is my mum's card.
I started with a piece of linen card as I wanted to emulate the canvas look. Then I used Fresco paints and a brayer to create background. I used several colours including chocolate brown, space cadet, cheesecake, blush, guacamole and probably some others.
Once dry, I used grunge paste and a couple of stencils. While still wet I added tarnished gold and gold detail embossing powder to some of the grunge paste as I wanted to achieve a distressed look. When paste was dry I heat embossed it.
While waiting I set about the flowers. I stamped in black archival and coloured them by using he solid stamps and distress inks. This makes for quick colouring.
After fussy cutting them, I added distress glitter to centres.
For the birds I glued a piece of dictionary paper from basill basics to kraft card to make it sturdy, and stamped birds in Black archival twice. I decoupaged the wings and coloured with same paints as background . I fussy cut them and stuck them to background with pinflair glue gel for dimension. I added glossy accents to their eyes.
I assembled the flowers in 2 opposing corners and added some leaves. I distressed leaves by adding some embossing powder to them.
Then I stamped the sentiment on kraft card, cut out in a banner fashion and added faux stitching.
I then matted and layered and attached to kraft card.
I do hope you like my offering today. My mum sure did, Theresa xx
