The challenge this week at C.R.A.F.T. is to make a Mothers Day card or flowery card or both!
The prize is some handmade flower embellishments and a gorgeous Stamping Bella stamp.
I've used an A5 card for a change. The image is Embrace by Penny Black, coloured with Promarkers, and some Stickles added to the flowers and butterfly. It's then been cut with an oval nestie, and matted on a scalloped oval nestie shape in blue pearl card. I've added a sheet of matching pearl blue card behind the chevrons, and some blue gems. I've cut 2 pieces of pearl white card, which I've run through the Cuttlebug with a circles folder, and added it either side of the chevrons. The letters 'MUM' have been coloured with Versacolour blue lagoon ink. The blue ribbon is by Fancy Pants, which I've wrapped round the pearl card and tied in a bow.
Hope you can join us at C.R.A.F.T. this week. Entries to be in by 8pm Wednesday. new work only please.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
