Starting on Mother's Day

It was time for me to make my post and thought I would get started on Mother's Day cards.

The base for this card is Eggplant feltweave.  It is great for a base because it is thick and has a little texture to it.

The rose and the leaves were cut from Vintage Silver Lustre.  It has a sheen to it.  I colored it with distress ink.  The backing for the leaves is Jelly Bean Green  pop tones and the backing for the rose is Bananna Split Pop Tones.

To bring in a little more sheen I used Rose Quartz Mica metallic behind the rose as the first layer and Mars Mica Metallic for the second layer.

Classic Linen can say thinking about you

All cardstock in this card is from Paper Temptress.  The base for this card is Earthstone Classic Linen.  The Mauve colored layer is Royal Mauve Classic Linen.  The beautiful brown is Chocolate Truffle Classic Linen.  Sorry I can't find a link for the chocolate linen.   The oval, butterflies and layer under the Hamby print is all Classic Natural Linen.


I know the butterfly in the second picture is a little blurry, but the point of this picture was to show the texture in the Classic Linen line.  On the butterflies I tried using some chalk and I used distress ink on the oval sentiment.
