Nobody Loves Like A Mum...So True!

by Joanne James6. April 2015 10:29

Happy Monday everyone! I am here nice and prompt today to share a card that I made using the same sketch as yesterday from the Deconstructed Sketch for my old friends over at Colour Me...! as I haven't played along with those lovely ladies in ages:


Sandy's card this week is so gorgeous it prompted me to get in the monochromatic groove. Here is my card using this week's colours:

I made a slightly larger card than usual (A5 finished size) as I wanted to have plenty of space on my central panel. I used Soft Sky for my base and a piece of Soft Sky DSP from the Subtles paper stack for my patterned mat, along with some black mats to frame everything, then having stamped the base floral image in Soft Sky, I then stamped the top layer image and the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed them with black embossing powder, which give a lovely sheen and glossy texture. I finished with a simple knotted bow using some black chevron ribbon overlaid with Soft Sky taffeta ribbon for a little touch of luxury. I decorated the inside of the card with the remaining half of the sentiment and some flowers (apologies - no photo!). I adore this stamp set - I love those two step stamping flowers, so easy to achieve with photopolymer, and the sentiment is just so heartfelt for a card to a mother - for Mother's Day, a birthday or 'just because'. 

That's me done for today - I have some jobs to do and lunch to prepare before a pleasant bike ride to look forward to this afternoon, if the day turns out to be as nice as it looks right now. Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

I love the sweet simplicity of this, Joanne. The bow is the perfect addition and I love how you used two types of ribbon. So happy to see you at Colour Me!
