Love you Mum

Love you Mum

Hi all,

This is my latest creation, it has taken the better part of half a day to make. Only because I had to wait for the Diamond Glaze & Kindy Glitz to dry. This is one of my favourites as of now. I don't know if I can bare to part with this one. I love it that much. Maybe I will leave it out & my dh will write in it for mother's day on behalf of our daughter. After I have told him to of course :).

My very good friend Helen & I went shopping the other day at our most favourite LSS (where I got the papers for Zac's card). We discovered these lantern stickers & decided to go halves in them. Then of course we had to challenge each other to come up with a card using the stickers. The other great thing about this card is except for the large Doll I have used all of Helen's stamps. We get together & stamp up a heap of stamps from each other. I am slowly getting through them all. So many stamps so little time :(.

Just a little info on the card, the large doll has 4 layers (each one raised up). The small doll uses 3 layers. I used Diamond Glaze on the doll's hair just to give it that extra bit of razzle dazzle ( I got the idea from one of the talented ladies on the Hero Arts flickr group). The background & branch for the owl are from the one stamped image. The flowers owl & his branch are all raised up as well. I used inks on the large flowers & Prisma color pencils on everything else.

Have a great weekend every one TTFN

Hi, Paula! Beautiful card! Love the scene you've created! I know what you mean about not wanting to part with a card! Sometimes I have to keep them for a while and just enjoy them before I am able to set them free. :-)

No wonder it has become your favourite card Paula... it is just so awesome. So much work but oh so beautiful. Love the sentiment as well.
