May Card #12
This is Mom's mother's day card. I gave it to her today, so I can post it now. I started out with glossy white cardstock and alcohol inks to create the flowers. I put some drops of alcohol inks on a teflon sheet along with some blending solution and pearl mixative. Then I dropped the piece of glossy face down on the teflon sheet and swirled & smooshed the paper around. This creates a fun background. You can pick up a teflon sheet near the irons at the big craft stores pretty cheaply. Ranger sells them, but they cost over twice as much. I'm all for saving my dollars when I can. Then, I stamped the flowers (Stampendous) with staz-on black ink and cut out the flowers. A little diamond stickles in the center, and curled up the petals on the flowers a bit. The sentiment is from the $1 stamps at Joanne's and is stamped on transparency with staz-on. I corner punched once and layered the DCWV cardstock to make the card.
