Whew! Last week was a rough one, but I made it through.
Why is the word fun in funeral anyway?
As sick as I am (in the head), I have yet to have fun at one.
I decided to work on my Mother's Day cards, since it
is quickly approaching and I have to send mine to Texas.
I finally got to use this beautiful image from Simply B stamps.
My dear friend, Andrea purchased this one for me a while back.
I used an embossing folder on the background, then accented
the embossing with some Burlap Distress ink, and some half pearls.
I also did a little cleaning up in Gimp, and removed some
pieces from the image to better suit my taste.
I colored her up using only two Copics, E81 and E87.
Glued on some fleurs and voila!
For this one I used one of the stunning flower images from
the uber talented, Teri at Delicious Doodles.
I added some black lace and some black half beads
to compliment the image with a nice contrast.
My Mother's favorite color (or lack of) is black, so this
one is probably going to Texas.
Being a native California girl, I am drawn to the ocean
(even dungeon dwellers need sun sometimes) and poppies.
I decided to go with the Copic R20's instead of the
typical orange California poppy to color this one.
It is so easy to color this image with the wonderful shading
I have a couple more cards to get made for Mother's Day,
and then I am on to Father's Day. Yay.
I will be back tomorrow with a killer card for my
nephew's birthday. He likes Nazi Zombies.
That's my boy!
