I'll be so glad to see Sunday arrive. We have had nothing but constant rain 24hrs a day since Tues! It's been gloomy and damp as you can well imagine. Rivers are running over their banks in some areas, the ground is so saturated, there is just no where for the rain to go. We really need to see the sun! And besides this weather is putting a real damper on our spring birding! (just saying :) )
So with that being said, I thought I would share something bright and cheerful! I loved how this turned out as I made 4 of them, and one of them says "MOM" on the front rather than sending birthday wishes.
I embossed the image onto some Strathmore Mixed Media vellum surface paper ( thanks Leslie for mentioning this, it is beautiful paper to watercolour on)using white embossing powder and then watercoloured the image and background using my Zig Clean colour markers. Image is from Simon Says - Spring Flowers. I then cut out the image out using MFT x-stitch rectangle die. The pink paper was cut using one of the dies from MFT - die-namics blueprints 27.
I cut the 'sending' from black cardstock twice and then adhered together to give it a bit of stability and thickness. Die is from Simon Says as well.
I then stamped 'birthday wishes' using black versafine.
To finish off I added some sequins and coloured the flower with my clear wink of stella pen.
I have some more Mother's Day cards to make so might make a few in different colours.
Thanks for your visit, enjoy your day!
