First things first - a message to my mother: Mum, DO NOT read this blog post as it contains a photo of your Mother's Day card. Step away from the computer :)
Now back to business.
It's time for my favorite challenge - Freshly Made Sketches. This week it's my sketch!
In case you haven't realised, this week I've made a Mother's Day card for my mother ;)
My mother is a knitter and when I saw this Impression Obsession stamp called Knit, it was a pretty easy decision to buy it. I love how realistic it looks! I combined that stamp with some stamps and dies from Verve called Lean on Me as well as some leaves from Clearly Besotted. This card is an equal opportunity card!
I colored the flowers with copics and painted them with Wink of Stella. I then stamped the leaves with Old Olive ink before fussy-cutting them. I layered these onto a partial circle in Early Espresso. I kept the sentiment panel nice and simple so that the sentiment stands out. A few candy dots finishes off the card.
The inside uses a sentiment from SU's Wonderful Mother set:
Thanks for looking. Head on over and check out the inspiration from the talented design team. I really hope you give my sketch a go.
