I had to my make two cards...one for Mom and one for Mother In Law. This year I decided to make them the same card. And by the way, my mother is doing great. There is no cancer...sigh of relief and prayers answered!
Anyway, this card is probably a little too crazy for the both of them, but I bet they both will love it all the same.I just had to use this new stamp set I just purchased from Artistic Outpost called Flapper's Fashions. I think it is perfect for Mother's Day.
|I stamped the AO images in Jet Black Archival onto watercolor paper.|
|I stamped the frame image in Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed using Seafoam Embossing Powder.|
|I colored in the images with Distress Markers.|
|I inked the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The Distress Markers resisted the ink. I spritzed water over the whole card, which gives a great bleached effect to the background and now the colored in images look watercolored.|
|I stamped the bubble wrap image using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, and the Flapper definition using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.|
|I stamped the lady in Jet Black Archival and colored her in using Distress Markers, but this time I will not watercolor them. I cut them out and adhered them to the center of the frame.|
I am also submitting this to the Stamp Man Challenge for "shabby chic or distressed style". Mine would probably qualify for both.Supplies:
From My Stash- white and black cardstock, watercolor paper, buttons
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
