I don’t make many Easter cards — just one for my mum and one for my other half’s sister because she loves bunnies. For my mum, I decided to go down the floral route.
And then you realise that there’s a really good reason why the other Mother’s Day card didn’t get posted to the blog. Although you wrote up a load of other cards and scheduled them, you didn’t actually get around to writing the post to go with this card. So, a couple of days late, here is the card I made for Mothering Sunday for my mum.
My go-to provider of floral digi stamps is Power Poppy, who make the most gorgeous floral arrangements, but every now and again it’s nice to colour something simpler that I can add a few tweaks to.
This started out as an experiment, one of those “see a technique, try it” self-contained experiments that have no purpose other than to have a go at something. Of course, me being me, I couldn’t leave a perfectly good bit of string art sitting unused for long.
I was in the mood for two things: using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers — hereafter known as ziggies for the sake of brevity — and doing a bit of heat embossing. After a couple of busy days creating the mouse at the lake card, I had thought that I would keep that day’s colouring for the Daily Marker challenge simple; that plan didn’t last long.
I don’t like to waste anything, so I needed to find a use for my patchy glitter kiss test piece. I had a search through my box of finished coloured pieces, looking for something that would go well with the shiny purple.
