I decided to make a Mother's Day card with a purple card base - it's not often I have a non-white card base😄
I stamped some flowers in purple shades and added in one pink flower for interest. I arranged the flowers with the help of some Press n Seal and set the bouquet to one side while I worked on the rest of the card. Onto a Boysenberry card base I added a white stitched rectangle frame which was popped up on foam tape. I then added the bouquet and a white-embossed Mother's Day sentiment. It was at this point I thought the card base looked too bland so I grabbed my new favorite accessory - Distress Resist Spray and, using a piece of scrap paper to protect the frame, flowers and sentiment, I spritzed the spray over the purple.
I was much happier after doing this, although it was rather hair-raising at the time because it could have completely botched an already finished card 😄 Some black Nuvo drops and I called it done!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you can carve out some time to make a prominently purple card and add it to the gallery! In the meantime, head on over and check out the gorgeous cards made by the DT.
I'm linking this card up to the current Altenew challenge as well as Work It Wednesday who are looking for cards honoring mums.
