MOTHERS FATHERS FLORALS RELEASE
Flowers, cuteness, beautiful backgrounds, sequins and more … it’s all there in the new release. I’ve got three projects I made while away earlier in the week.
BEST MOM EVER
Flowers and leaves are one of my favourite things to colour and the Best Mom Ever set has ones with nice clean lines for easy colouring. I chose to stamp two corners of florals in Antique Linen Distress Ink on watercolour card and then paint with watercolour to give a no-line look.
I added shading and strengthened the lines with coloured pencils and then stamped the sentiment from the Best Mom Ever set in Versafine Onyx Black ink
I accented the panel with my new favourite embellishment – Nuvo Jewel Drops which dry to a lovely translucent finish. The finished panel is foam mounted on a Desert Storm card base.
How simply adorable are these cute deer from the So Deer set! I kept this card nice and simple by stamping with Intense Black ink and then masking the deer and florals on white card, blending Seafoam, Dusty Sage and Winter Sky dye inks over the panel and then colouring with Copics.
I was away from home when I made these cards and hadn’t taken any coloured card with me and so I used a pink Copic to colour a piece of white card and then stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink, trimmed to a banner and foam mounted.
To accent I added a few Sparkling Clear sequins and then mounted the panel on a Fog card base.
FLORA BACKGROUND + BIG MOM DIE
I loved the Flora Background as soon as I saw it – it reminded me of a beautiful colouring page. I stamped the background with clear embossing ink on Neenah Solar White card and then white heat embossed before blending Rose Apple and Clementine inks over the top. On vellum, I stamped and white heat embossed a couple of More Spring Flowers stems and die cut with their matching dies. I attached these with a glue dot and then wrapped twine around to accent.
I cut the Big Mom die from white card and foam mounted under the level of the twine. Finally I blended more Rose Apple ink in on a piece of card, stamped a sentiment from Mom And Dad Icons with clear embossing ink and then white heat embossed. I trimmed the sentiment in to a banner and foam mounted it over the Mom dies.
Again I reached for the Nuvo Jewel Drops to accent along with a sprinkling of sequins and then mounted the panel on a white card base.
As mentioned above, today’s post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the Mothers Fathers Florals release. Hopefully you’ve arrived here from Yana’s blog but if not then a good place to start is back at Simon’s blog.
