Another Sunday and it's time for another fun challenge at Stamptacular. This week our challenge is "Mums the Word" and we want to see your cards or projects which include the word "Mum/Mom" or "Mother" or any other form of the word.
We are lucky enough to be sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week who are offering one randomly chosen entrant a $20 gift certificate. Why not come and play along.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin - Try something new (I made a shaped card and used my Aquamarkers for the first time)
Craft Us Crazy - Mom's and/or Flowers
Charisma Cardz - April Showers/May Flowers (as it's the first of May I have opted for the flowers element)
I cut a plant pot shape from K&Co paper and added a simple ribbon and bow. My letters are cut using my Cricut from some lilac card and yellow Sizzix papers.
The pansies are a Papermania stamp set made up of a whole pansy, two individual top petals, a winged set of petals, a lower petal, a centre bit and a leaf. I stamped all the component parts on water colour paper, water coloured them with my Letraset Aquamarkers (it's the first time I have used these markers and I need some practice), cut them out, wet them some more, scrunched them up, unfolded them again and layered them up. I won't do that again. It took FOREVER and the colours ran when I was wetting and scrunching so I had to keep painting them again. It certainly gave me green fingers (and hands and wrists...)
My teamies have lots of fabby inspiration for you too so why not hop on over to our site share some love!
We have our lovely daughter and adorable grandson staying with us at the moment so my crafting and blogging is taking a back seat for a while. I'll try to drop by occasionally to see you though!
