2015 - Week 11 - Mother's Day - Mum

Card No. 2

Here is the Card I made for my Mum
I finally made contact with my Mum 
a few years ago.
I had known I was adopted all my life,
and I even knew her name.
I am so blessed that our reunion was 
a joyous and happy one,
even more so as I found a whole new family 
who welcomed me back with open arms.

My Mum has never been far from 
my thoughts and prayers,
and now I can share this Day with her.

Mum'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

Lily And Butterfly - 
By Delicious Doodles.
Which I printed out
  on White DC Paper 3 times.
And coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                        Lillies -        Buttercup
                                                                             Lime Zest
                                                                             Pear Green
                                                        Butterfly -  Buttercup

I then used one of the Images as my Base Image.
From the next Image 
I fussy cut out the Butterfly,
and the all the Lilies.
And from the last Image I 
fussy cut out the Butterfly again
and the Largest Lily.
Then decoupaged the Flowers up,
and one of the Butterflies.
The other Butterfly I placed in the top left corner,
using a Black Pen to draw in its Antenna .

For my Sentiment I printed it off 
on the Image I used as my Base.
Using the English 111 Presto BT Font,
and Abstract 3 Texture for the Writing
(which is like Orange/Brown Lines).
I use the Greeting Card Factory 
(Art Explosion)
for all my work.

I Handmade the Bow from 
1cm Holographic Gold Ribbon
(Boyes Haberdashery). 
And I added some sparkle with 
Holographic Gold Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to the Stamens of the Flowers,
and the center of the Butterflies Bodies.
Finally I placed a 
5mm Yellow Dotted Rhinestone
in each of the Corners.
