Its time to knock out some Mothers Days Cards. when I was doing my card I made the other day I ended up painting four different panels. As you know I can never do anything by one thats why I'm always behind the times.
This one I did in purple tones again with the Kuretake paints. Not as happy with this mix so will try again later and on better paper as I have now used up all the embossed images on the cheap watercolour paper. Still to post two others so you will hear me mention again BUT it will be interesting to see the difference between this watercolour paper that was fine to paint on just doesn't look as good and the better watercolour paper. Will let you know.
the top flower you can see is much closer to the true colour of the flowers, the larger bloom looks dull but is actually more like the top smaller flower.
I have die cut the stitched rectangle die from the watercolour piece and another the same size in a purple cardstock then decided to mount on a lilac card stock. Stamped the sentiment undated a gem above and below. I know the rule is usually never even numbers but it just worked for me, they are large and another was too much so I left it as it was. I liked it.
Its a pretty card and I will probably give to mum as she loves these soft colours. Plenty of time to decide as Mothers Day isn't till May.
Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
Wondering why I haven't posted, interested in the drama in my household then read on.....
Well I haven't posted since last Tuesday and I'm finally back. I have neglected commenting on blogs left right and centre with all these beautiful cards and challenges around. I did get to a couple last night.
Tuesday is babysitting day with my two youngest grandchildren. Welllll they decided to get sick before the day ended so there was lots of sadness, tears, yuck, moping, cuddling, washing and redressing before my time was up.
Long and the short of it is they decided to share their germs (was it their fault or MINE cause I just cant get enough of kisses and cuddles even when their sick) and of course being sick they love to cuddle up to Nanny.
Elysha and I lasted a day before it hit us, vomiting and diarrhoea, same with my son and his wife and her parents. Boy it wiped us all out.
We are both only just starting to think of eating again and still thinking we will wait another day just to be sure. Of course the weekly visit to mum and dad had to be postponed.
I hope you all have a wonderful time at Easter and celebrate in the way that you want. I'MMMM BACK. How many cards can I post before Monday????
