Today I'm sharing with you a card I made for my mom for Mother's Day (surprise mom! lol--it will be in the mail cuz' I'm late with the card but not the presents)! This card uses the fabulous new "Day Dreamin'" stamp from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD--isn't it a beauty! I love the it and the way the breeze seems to be blowing right thru--my fave thing in the world is to have a breeze blowing in thru the windows and to hear the trees rustling outside. I also used the NEW Basic Grey paper "Capella"--isnt' it gorgeous (love those soft colors)--I used soft sky, dove gray and cream cardstocks to match it. Susana will have the Basic Grey in stock early this coming week.
Friday Sketcher's sketch for my layout, wrapped it with cream ribbon and topped it with a bow made with my Bow Easy. You can find these beautiful pearls here (in bliss) and those roses are Prima Cameo Roses--aren't they gorgeous tinged with color. I used my favorite scroll punch here to accent the flowers and a MS leaf punch for the leaves.
She's colored with Copics (duh right) and then I added flower soft to the window box (I used baby blue and the sweet pea mix together). I scored the shutters and folded them up so they were more 3-D. The window panes have diamond glaze on them and while it was still wet I spritzed the center of the stamp (I folded the shutters back because I wanted them to be solid, not sparkly) with Vanilla Smooch Spritz. The curtains got a coating of Shimmerz Buttercream paint after they were colored with Copics. In my Class 4 at the Color Me Creative Classroom I have a video that shows multiple ways to color "sheer items" like these curtains.
