Wonderful Mum

 Good Afternoon,

An unusual time for me to post I hear you say, but I am on annual leave and am trying to get better at posting more regularly. We'll see how it goes when I get back to work.
I thought I would share the card I made for my Mum who has been so wonderful helping me with my recovery from my recent treatments. "Love you Mum"

All papers used are printed from a Dreamees CD, the backing paper, mat on round focal point and for the flowers. The roses are hand rolled and the blossoms were punched.
The leaves were die cut, the doily (by bird cards) was cut on the cameo both in kraft and both were inked with distress ink.
The sentiment was made by me on the computer.
Hope you like, my Mum did!

Vintage Roses

Good Morning,

I've been having another play with my Altenew stamps and a bit of masking

I inked the edges and used the same ink to add a few splatters which I added glossy accents to.

Good Evening,

Another great theme this fortnight at 
Moving Along With The Times
chosen by Terri which is:
Rainbow or Rainbow colours

I started with a piece of white card which I applied strips of different coloured inks to using  dusting brushes. I then stamped my Altenew "beautiful day" flowers and leaves in VersaMark and heat embossed in white. I stamped part of the sentiment and cut part on the cameo

Please do hop on over to the main challenge blog here to see the wonderful creations my teamies have created.
