Happy Mother's Day to all mummies out there. Today I would like to share the card I made for mum's day which was inspired by both the The Card Concept and Fusion Card Challenge. When I saw the current Spring Flowers Challenge at the Card Concept I thought it was time to make another flower based card. However, I could not decide on what colour to go with until I saw the Sweet Orange Blossom Challenge at Fusion Cards. I loved the fresh orange flowers....so orange it was!
I used the beautiful, delicate flowers from the AlteNew Persian Motif stamp set for this card. I have owned this stamp set for about a year but this was the first time I have had the opportunity to ink it up! I love these flowers :)
I also thought it was time to try out another colouring medium so out came my Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils. I was lucky enough to pick up the full set of 120 quite a few months ago on sale but, I'm afraid to say I have never really used them! This card was a practice run for me.
I kept this card very simple with minimal embellishments as I wanted the flowers to have centre stage.
AlteNew Stamps - Perisan Motifs
Memento Ink - London Fog
MFT Die-namics - Tag Builder 4
Simon Says Stamp Cardstock - Fog
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins - Lime Sorbet 4mm
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins - Create a Smile Snowdance Mix
Zig Wink Of Stella Glitter Pen - Clear
The flowers were stamped on a piece of white cardstock using London Fog Ink and then coloured. I then added some clear wink of stella for some shimmer. I generated the sentiment on the computer and printed it out in Grey. I used a flag from MFT die-namics tag builder set to cut out the sentiment. I trimmed this and mounted it to the card using foam tape. I adhered a couple of sequins before mounting the image onto a SSS Fog cardstock card base.
I would also like to link up with the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by,
