Yesterday was Mother's Day, so of course I couldn't share this card prior to Mother's Day :) This is the card I gave to my Mom. Over all it's a pretty simple card. I have a love/hate relationship with my stamp a ma jig. I have friends who love it and don't stamp without it. Normally I don't use my stamp a ma jig, there are very few stamps that I'll dig it out for. I thought it would be helpful with this card but as you can see my words are still crooked even with the use of the stamp a ma jig, so now you understand my love/hate relationship. It seems that I can only make it work properly with 2 step stamps such as this one. But when it comes to words no matter what I do, they never come out straight. This was try number 4 and I decided it was going to have to work :)
Fortunately there's a lot going on with this card, so hopefully that distracts from the crooked stamping :) The rose on top is made with the new clay and flower molds that will be in the new catalog. I just love this clay!!! I've made a bunch of flowers to have on hand. You never know when you might need one on the spot! I used my aqua painter and painted the rose first in Pink Pirouette, then once that was dry I used my aqua painter and went over it with Strawberry Slush. Some parts are darker and shaded which I love! Of course I had to add pearls and a doily, more of my faves!!!
Thanks for looking see you soon!!!!
