Hi everyone, today I am sharing the card I made for the Penny Black and More challenge reminder, and it's also the card I made for my Mother-in-Law for Mother's Day which was celebrated last Sunday here in the States (and in some other parts of the world).
To make my card, I first masked the edges of the the white card stock using washi tape and added a circle mask for the sun (or moon). The grass and sky were inked, then I used a word border stamp by Whimsy Stamps on the grass part. The masks were removed after inking and then I stamped the poppy image. I stamped it again on designer paper and fussy cut the blossoms. Not sure if you can tell, but I used a clear wink of stella brush on the flowers. The poppy pods were colored using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I finished off the card by adding a punched butterfly with some sticky pearls.
And below is the inspiration photo/colors.
Use the image or colors as your inspiration and come play along.
I had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. The weather was perfect and my family surprised me with this beautiful garden fairy. This year I decided to plant some Hostas around our large tree in the backyard and I thought this pretty fairy fits so well into this setting.
The pink flowers on the right side don't seem very happy, it's only because they were just planted before I took this photo on Mother's Day, they do look beautiful now. The bench is really old and "use at your own risk" 😁, but the squirrels like sitting on it so it is staying. Plus it makes a good spot for the little fairy garden my daughter and I planted.
This week I also finished planting all my vegetables, I bought more than I could fit into the garden, so hopefully they will still grow, as I had to squeeze some in.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week, I will be back again on Saturday with my card for the Allsorts special birthday challenge.
