For a Funky Mother

Hi everyone,

I swear sometimes I feel like I'm suffering from split personalities. Yesterday's project was all shabby chic and today.... THIS !

Is there a cure for this?! This card is so far away from the frame of mind I was in yesterday. It's all about poppin' vibrant colors and I quite like it. The main color is Melon Mambo and the border at the bottom was punched with a Martha Stewart punch (large double punch arches combo set). I created the background with an image from SU's Fifth Avenue Floral that I repeated, masking along the way to create a grouping of flowers. The image was inked with Whisper White  Craft Ink and outlined with a Copic marker (#RV19). I didn't come up with this technique; I saw it on Nichole Heady's blog. I lovedhow it turned out.

Of course, I had to add some bling. The sentiment was first stamped with Versamark over a piece of vellum then heat embossed it in white. The two score lines at the top and bottom of the vellum helps to mask the score tape underneath (another idea I stole from Nichole!).

So now I just have to find a funky mom to give this to on Mother's Day!

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

J'adore!! Ces couleurs sont si joyeuses. Beau combo. Puis la ligne du haut embossée a sec m'a fait d'abord croire que c'était une petite corde. Superbement réussi! J'adore ta 2D personnalité. ;D

Flashy! I like it. The glitter is just enough and I love the score lines on the vellum.
