Mother's Day Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

I haven't posted in a while because I really wanted the picture of Marie, my cleaning kit I made for MSB and the interview of Candie to stay on top for just a bit longer. But, Joni scolds me when I don't update more often. heehee


This card is for the latest challenge on The Corrosive Challenge blog. I made a very simple Mother's Day card - and it doesn't even have to be for Mother's Day, but a note to your Mom. I love the softness of this card. The focal image is out of the set Cup of Stuff from The Greeting Farm that at the last Farmer's Market Marie had on sale. I'd been waiting and waiting! I fell in love with this set because I have a love for tea sets - so this fit right in. Now the cool part of this card (I think so anyway) was playing with a digi stamp that I got from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. That's the name of her store, her blog is The Frugal Crafter's Weblog - and she has awesome images!! OK, so what I did, I played around with printing it. I printed it directly onto my card base and then colored with Prismacolor Markers. Lightly! Go lightly with the color or use a different color medium so that the color doesn't bleed to the inside of the card. Then I stamped the tea cup arrangement image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Prismacolor markers. Mounted to a scallop circle cut out of Almost Amethyst and assembled. Easy!

I hope that you visit the Corrosive Challenge blog, don't forget my challenge using Shop Gal from Modern Sugar Blvd., and visit Lindsay, too.

Thanks for visiting me.
