Happy Friday. - Time once again for the Blogger's Challenge Group to post their projects. In honor of Mother's this weeks challenge was of course to do something related to Mother's Day. I decided to go with a card.
I already had part of a card started from another challenge (http://faithartistry.blogspot.com/2009/04/bc95-color-combo-challenge-floral.html that I didn't finish up in time to post I decided to use the pieces I had finished and work them into a card for this challenge instead.
I'm still having some problems with my wrist hurting when I stamp a lot so it saved me some effort since most of this card was already completed.
My card base is Chocolate Chip layered with Sage Shadow. Then I stamped the Paisley Print BG (retired) with Always Artichoke ink on Sahara Sand cs. I added a punched piece of Always Artichoke and some Sage Shadow ribbon. I stamped the flower from Eastern Blooms with Sage Shadow ink on Whisper White cs and used Crystal Effects and Autumn Glitter (Art Institute) for the flower center. I cut the flower out and added the punched fronds (Martha Stewart) and then mounted this onto a circle of Chocolate Chip cs that was sprayed with a mixture of hairspray and Aztec Gold PearlX powder for some added shimmer. The sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink and highlighted with a strip of the CC cs that I pierced. - Okay I'll be honest my row of piercing was originally on the Sahara Sand card stock but it was crooked so I covered it up with the strip of cs and hey, it gave it a whole new look. I punched out 3 circles 3/4" of the CC cs also sprayed with my shimmer spray and punched out 3 Sage Shadow flowers and added centers with the Crystal Effects and the Autumn Glitter to complete the card.
I wish all you Mother's out the a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. - Be sure to stop by the fellow challenge members blogs and see their creations. Have a fantastic weekend.
