Hi friends, and to all the Moms out there, a Happy Mothers Day! I am blessed to be the Mom to three amazing adult children, and look forward to spending the day with two of them. One of them lives out of state, but I'm super excited that I am going to visit him at the end of the month.
Jaydee is our hostess with the mostess today at The Paper Players, and she has a wonderful pastel color combo for us. It will come as no surprise to you that I immediately thought to do something floral!
This is the first time I'm inking up my new Organic Blooms stamp set from Mama Elephant, and I am in love! This is such a beautiful bouquet and I can't wait to use it with other mediums. Today I inked it up with Versamark Ink and embossed with white embossing powder, then watercolored the image using ink refills in the challenge colors. I embossed the sentiment and banner onto vellum, and I have a little trick to share. Though not on my supply list, I used Elmers Spray Adhesive to attach the vellum to the card base. It works great and since it's a super fine mist you can't see it through the vellum.
I've had the frame of my card laying around for ages, and when I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches I knew it was the perfect time to put it to use. This stamp set comes with lots of great sentiments, but I used one from a different set to stay closer to the sketch. Believe it or not, I didn't have an appropriate sentiment big enough to extend accross the entire card. I'll have to do something about that!
