On Mother's Day

Well, I have managed to squeeze a Mother's Day card into my itinerary - for my MIL, who apparently was unaware that all the cards she ever got from me were actually coloured by me too.  She thought I just bought everything 'as is' and stuck it down!

Yes, I used this LOTV image not too long ago (Rosie Posy), and yes, I certainly do have other LOTV images I could have used, but you can't go far wrong with a bunch of flowers for Mother's Day can you?  This time I put the image into a frame I cut using a design by Bird's Cards and added the required elements at Lili's Little Fairies this week - lace (from Fantastic Ribbons) and ribbon from my stash.

I chose the fab sketch to work to from Creative Belli and one of the required elements was a sentiment on the front, in this instance, a circular one from Bluebird Flats. As the writing in the centre of the sentiment was rather small, I repeated it on the inside of the card but enlarged it to make it more legible having layered the papers on the opposite side to the sketch. The white rectangle is of course for my hand written 'from' - as long as I don't forget to do that bit! LOL.

  10. Wow Tine! I love how you colored her hair, Ive been practicing the last couple afternoons trying to get "the perfect color combo" for black hair with my pencils with very limited success. I didn't want it to look gray and I didn't want it to look blue. Its a difficult one. Yours came out perfect! Did you use cool grays or warm? Looks like cool?
