Mother's Day.

Mother's Day always demands some special cards - and I think each one should be unique. So here is this years selection ...

I made this one using Stamping Bella with Echo Park "Here & Now" paper. I edged the paper with peel offs (Retro - not used Peel offs for Donkeys years.) Whilst on the peel off roll... I used Peel off letters also, along with some sparkly Black letter stickers from Hobbycraft. I also added some black gem swirls from Hobbycraft too. I used a little glaze on the drinks cup and some stickles for the shopping bags which I paper pieced together to get different textures and colours. I added a little ribbon to finish it off and kept it fairly simple.

This card uses a brand New Tiddly Inks image - called Wynn - Have a Heart, coloured as always with Promarkers. The paper is from collection of "Valentine" from Recollection. I used a coordinating page and die cut a doillie to keep the theme of paper cuts going. I glazed and added some glitter to the little hearts. The greeting is from Craftworks card which I colour matched to the background. I added some glittery Martha Stewart flowers and a few flat backed pearls to give some extra sparkle.
The Promarkers I used are  -
Hair - Spice (Very darkest shadow), Pineapple Crush, Buttercup, Vanilla, 
Skin -Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Antique White.
Dress - Carmine, Magenta & Baby Pink.

I made this card for My Mum & kept it simple. The stamp is from Stamping Bella.  
I paper pieced the dress, apron & Washing basket from a 6x6 pad from Echo Park "Here & Now"collection. I added some shadowing with Promarkers.  I used the same paper to mat the image and added just a few gems.
The Promarkers I used are  -
Hair - Cocoa, Henna and Cinnamon.  
Skin -Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Antique White.
Ironing board - Icicle blue & Powder Blue.
I also used Buttercup, Vanilla and Ivory to create the background haze.

This one was made for the future Mother in Law with the brief from the other half being bright, flowers and embellishments -Think I covered all these! The image is from Tiddly Inks & is coloured with Promarkers - 
Skin - Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Antique White.
Hair - Warm grey 1, 3 & 5. 
Her shoes & the leaves are Mint & soft green and her dress is wild Orchid and Lavender.
The flowers are Azure, Wild Orchid, Lavender, Blue Pearl and the big yellow one is Sunflower, Canary, Lemon 
The papers are from a 6X6 pad I've had for a while from S.E.I called Sunny Day and I used 3 different patterns , which I mounted on black to make it pop.
I added a selection of flowers - the big yellow is from Prima, the smaller paper flowers are from Petaloo and I added a couple of co-ordinating resin flowers and gems.

By the way I don't have 4 Mums! Just the one...Hope you like them all and that the Mums they were made for loved them too.
