I hope you're having a nice evening? The rain was fairly pelting it down there a while ago, but it seems to have settled again...for now!
I hope all you mummy's out there (the maternal kind rather than the bandaged up kind!) had a nice day yesterday and were suitably spoiled! My Mummy was away for a few days in Geneva (with Daddy!) and arrived back home again on Sunday evening so didn't get her spoiling til then. It's a good thing too, cos I didn't even start making her Mother's Day card until 5 o'clock on Sunday evening!! I don't know why I always leave things to the last minute!!
It wasn't for a DT challenge blog this time so no info to tell at the start for a change!
Here it is...
The image and sentiment was a freebie from the lovely Teri at Delicious Doodles, I got it from her Facebook group but I think she also has it on her website. I coloured the roses with the following copics: R22,21,00. YG97,95,93. I painted over the wording with a glittery ink that I got from Stampin' Up! in the colour Champagne Mist.
I used some MME papers for the background from the Up & Away pad. I used lots of dies... Spellbinder Decorative Labels 8 and Curved Rectangles mega nestabilities for the sentiment/image. Cheery Lynn Designs; Mini Fanciful Flourish. Magnolia; Swirl Doohickey and Impression Obsession dies for the smallest rolled flowers. The bigger rolled roses I cut by hand. I sprinkled some Frantage embossing powder on the papers and heated from underneath for that speckledy (new word!) effect.
I also rubbed the roses in Versamark and frantaged the edges of some of them and I used holographic embossing powder on some others.
The inside has paper from the same pad and the sentiment is computer generated using the font Penshurst, which matches the image/sentiment on the front. It also got the glittery ink treatment.
And that's my card. I also made a box for it, but it was so simple I didn't bother photographing it - it just had a sheet of matching paper stuck to the lid - last minute, see!
I hope you like it, I was quite pleased that it actually turned out something like what I was imagining and my Mummy seemed to like it, even if she did have to be careful cos the glue was still wet!! lol!
