Here in the UK its Mother's Day so Happy Mother's Day to all you Mums! Here is the card I made for my wonderful Mum-in-Law, Sue.
The background is Distress Inks on glossy card, spritzed with water then covered with cling film that was crinkled up, I left it to dry, then removed the cling film The die I popped over the top is by Spellbinders and the butterflies were made using a fabulous stamp by Visible Image. I stamped in black Versafine on scraps of card from my bit box and embossed with clear powder. I then watercoloured them with Distress Inks. The two end ones are blue with purple in the centre and the centre one is blue and green with purple in the centre. I just had to add some sparkle so used some different colours of Stickles around the edges of the blue butterflies and lots more on the centre one. I put the sentiment inside the card as I like the front as it is.
I am going to stay with my Daughter for a few days from Tuesday. I am looking forward to lots of cuddles with my two Granddaughters. I will be seeing my Son too as he lives quite near my Daughter. It will be so cool to see them all!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Darnell's NBUS Challenge - I have never before used the butterfly stamp or the Spellbinders die.
Pixie's Snippets Playground - I used snippets of card for my butterflies.
Butterfly Challenge - This time you must use butterflies plus glitter and/or grape - I have used glitter and the purple in the centre of my butterflies is a grape colour.. I am not sure how well this shows in the photo though!
These are all fabulous blogs, all well worth a visit!
