Hello there! Becca Cruger is up on the blog next with a really pretty card with a touch of inkyness…
Hello Bloggy Friends!
Mother’s Day is coming on the horizon and I’m thinking about how to make my mom cry. She had a good deal of that go on in my youth – but these days I try to make her cry for much different reason . Hehe!
So when I got my hands on the Visible Image Mother Definition stamp, I just fell in love because I knew for sure I could make my momma cry.
When I was thinking about the card, the bone china with the bright blue patterns sprang right to mind and I wanted to re-create that feel.
I took the Fibonacci background stamp and inked it up with some bright blue Distress Inks on my Misti. I spritzed it with water from a small bottle, and then stamped.
As you can see, it created this perfectly imperfect background, which I mounted on dark blue cardstock to base it, and then sponged around the outside edges with some brown Distress Oxides.
It’s been awhile since I used paper flowers to create a cohesive design, but in this case, I knew it was just the thing.
After I embossed the sentiment, I added different layers of flowers and gold leaves, sprinkling everything with a layer of Distress Spray Stains.

In the end, I completely adored the card and know it will make some woman very special and happy.
What a gorgeous card! Love the flowers against the background.. the fibonacci stamp looks awesome in that spritzed purple ink. Thanks Becca ♡
