For Mother....

I've made a few Mother's Day cards to sell at work.


This first one was inspired by a card I saw on Flickr from Kim (see here), I used some Hero Arts ink to sponge through a The Crafter's Workshop stencil and then used a Kaisercraft stamp to stamp the leaves and buds.  The butterfly is a Hero Arts one, coloured with Copics.  I had the ribbon in my stash already coloured.  The sentiment on the bottom is from Kaisercraft.


The second card uses a Hero Arts stamp.  Originally this  was as one-layer card, but I ended up with green ink on it somehow!  So a save... rather than recolour the flowers, I fussy cut them out and layered onto the card. I used some HA ink to colour some white card, to make my strip down the side,


And this final card is a digi image from A Day For Daisies.  I coloured with Copics and then used a finger dauber with Walnut Stain Distress ink to give some dimension to the centres.   Once again, used a Kaisercraft sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by my little piece of blogland today.
