Mother's Day Card by Fran


Today I am sharing the Mother's Day card I created for Cutters Creek. The main focus of the card is the adorable stamped image by Sarah Kay called Barbette Sewing. What a sweet image and so much fun to color. I colored her using Prisma Colored Pencils using the Gamsol technique. I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities to frame her. I shaded the two layers of nestabilities with Chalk-Shimmers (its sold out) but it is really fun to use. The papers are by Echo Park called This & That Graceful Double Sided. They are gorgeous! And I even added a zig zag stitch around the border using yellow thread. I used seam binding for my ribbon and dyed it to match one of the colors in the paper using the Distress Ink Re-inkers. The roses are from my personal stash however I colored them using Liquid Pearls Rouge and Gold Pearl. This medium is amazing to work with because you can use it right from the bottle, paint with a brush or dilute it with water for a shimmery look. Check out the cute scissors (these come from my personal stash). And I covered them with Stickles Gold Glitter Glue. Cutters Creek is now carrying them and they are from Kaisercraft. Go and check them out to see all the beauiful shapes. The corners on the card front and the scalloped borders on the inside of the card were made with the Rounded Banner Trio by Die-namics. The inside of the card uses the same paper from the This & That Graceful Double Sided 6x6 pad. And I punched 1/2 inch circles from the same paper to form a scallop border around the oval shape for the sentiment. This card can also be used as a Birthday Card too.
Below are photos of the front and inside of my Mother's Day Card. And all the different mediums that worked so well together to get these results.

Have a wonderful Day! Fran
