Don't look MOM!
This is got to be one of my top 'I really like it' cards. It's going to be given to my mom on Mother's Day. So I hope she's not peaking :-) You'll have to click on it to see the detail. For some reason when I enlarge the picture, it gets blurry. So be sure to click on the card to see it in all it's beauty.
I went to my friend Vivian's home this weekend for some fun ,creative, girl time. She had a pacemaker implanted last week and was feeling pretty down. Getting back to stamping, perked her up immensely. Right Vivian? We colored some flowers, from the Pretties Kit, with chalk then we tried it with markers. The markers are for a definate saturated flower and the chalk made the flowers pastel. They came out beautiful. I'll be using them in another card, so eyes open.
Now back to the 'I really like it' card. We stamped the SU! From the Garden flower onto Whisper White then went to work coloring it with colored pencils and the blender pen. Added Crystal Effects to the center and OHH we didn't have any ribbon that matched so we colored white ribbon with a marker. Now that is a cool trick! We dug into Vivian's Pretties Kit and Hodgepodge to finish off the card. But then we both thought is was lacking something...Glitter!!
