2015 - Week 11 - Mother's Day - Mom

Card No. 1
Well lets see if you were all paying 
attention to my last Blog, 
and see if you can work out 
which "Mother" gets which Card.
I know its so confusing 
even for those close to me.

As all my "Mum's" have got their cards 
I can now share them with you.

Here is the Card I made for my Mom
My Mom's Canadian, 
and when I first saw this Image 
I immediately thought of the last time 
we were both in Canada.
we were sitting out on the deck at the 
Family House, 
watching the Hummingbirds
flitting around.
We even went and bought feeders 
so we could watch them.

Mom's Mothers Day Card

To begin with I used a pre-cut Scalloped Square White Card
Then for the backing paper
 I used  Iridescent Metallic Yellow Paper
(Craft Planet)

The Image I have used is
Fuschia And Hummingbird - 
By Delicious Doodles.
Which I printed out
  on White DC Paper 3 times.
And coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                           Fuchsia -  Buttercup
                                                                              Dusky Rose
                                                                             Pastel Pink
                                                                             Meadow Green 
                                                                             Pear Green
                                                           Bird -        Blossom
                                                                              Cool Grey 2
                                                                              Cool Grey 4
                                                                              Cool Grey 5
                                                           Border -    Blossom

I then used one of the Images as my Base Image.
From the next Image 
I fussy cut out the Hummingbird,
and the Large Fuschia Flowers.
And from the last Image I 
fussy cut out the Beak and the Feet of the Hummingbird
and the Purple centers of the Fuchsias.
Then decoupaged the Flowers up.

For the Hummingbird I hand-cut out the 
Body and the Bottom of the Wings for the Hummingbird
from Iridescent Metallic Green Paper
(Craft Planet),
and glued it all to gether with the Beak and Feet on top.
Adding Black Promarker Pen and 
White Shake Graph'it Pen for the Eye. 
And decoupaged it up from the Base Image.

For my Sentiment I printed it off 
on the Image I used as my Base.
Using the English 111 Presto BT Font,
and Natures Design 13 Texture for the Writing
(which is a Peacocks Feather).
I use the Greeting Card Factory 
(Art Explosion)
for all my work.

I Handmade the Bow from 
5mm Green Satin Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery). 
And I added some sparkle with 
Holographic Copper Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Stamens + Pistil of the Flowers.
Finally I went around the outside placing a 
3mm Yellow Rhinestone in each of the Scallops
matching the gaps for the straight edge.
