Happy May everyone! Hope your weather is great...I know it's been crazy in a lot of places. Today, I have two Mother's Day cards to show you, that I am sending out to my Mother and Mother In Law. I usually make them cards extra feminine style, but this time I wanted a more vintage and almost masculine look, minus the roses. I LOVE the way they came out, and hope they do too.
|I dug through my stash and found some of Ranger's Perfect Pearls Powders...remember those?!! It's always great to mix new product with the old. That's how to use up your stash so you can buy more! ;0) I misted my craft sheet with Tim's Distress Spray Stains in various red tones, and then added Pink Bubblegum and Perfect Pearl to the mix. I misted water on this, and then drug several tags through one time.|
|The sheen on the tags is fabulous. I wish you could see it. I stamped Wendy's Script stamp randomly on the tags with her Red Geranium Archival. I cut the stamp in two, in case you are wondering, to have for classes.|
|I inked the edges of the tags with Red Geranium. The shimmer and script coming through is wonderful. I used two for this project, and will save the other two for another day.|
|I used paper from the Dapper and Correspondence stash to create the background, as well with a little Tissue Tape.|
|I coated this with Crazing Distress Collage Medium for a really cool vintage look. Then I started to add lots of ephemera, and lots of stitching, followed by Remnant Rubs, and a Mirrored Heart.|
Happy Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there with babes. I hope you are pampered and loved where ever you are!
