Happy Mother's Day


 Happy Mother's Day everyone!
I am so thrilled with this card! Working with vellum and H20s is so cool....the watercolor makes the vellum curl so you don't have to fuss with it...and the, for lack of a better word, manual embossing with a stylus helps give added dimension also. I used a combination of techniques on this card that I saw on the Heartfelt Creations site. Using the vellum and manual embossing - only she used this technique on a field of Irises background stamp card. I've used it on my focal point Iris and added SU ink pen and vellum leaves for more dimension. I love the way it turned out and hope you do to.

Old Mill

Doesn't this Old Mill invoke images of yesteryear? I love working with my new Heartfelt Creations' stamps. They are well made and leave a nice crisp image (wish my photos did same LOL).

Flower-burst

Hello,
Sorry it's been so long since I've posted anything. I've had some computer issues (to say the least)! And I was scrambling to get my entries done for our county fair. I'll be back tomorrow a.m. with my Easter cards. In the meantime, here's a card made using Glimmer Mist, a glimmer screen and a paper flower. The flower center is made of pearls and tiny beads.
Love the starburst effect on this one.
Have a great evening!
