mum's card

Hello there! How are you? I hope you are good. I have a card on the Countryview Challenges blog today and here it is here on my blog. The theme this month is 'In the summer Garden'. This time I chose to use a JOFY set of stamps and made a card that I gave my mum for her birthday!

I started with a distress oxide background and stamped the stems and leaves on to it. I used distress oxides and inks to add further colour to the leaves and stems.  Next I used brushos and created a red/orange background and stamped on the flower heads and then fussy cut them. I then coloured the centres in brown and added the heads to the card..

I also added the sentiment from the stamp set and some Chocolate Baroque bees...

Here's a proper close up of the these flowers!!!

Hope you enjoy this piece and might even join us in the challenge!

Big hugs
