Over at Impression Obsession, the current challenge is to create art celebrating mothers. What a wonderful idea!
For this card, I used one of Gary Robertson's stamps ("A Day at the Beach") over a distress inked watercolour paper background (for the current Crazy Amigo challenge [inked backgrounds] and the Creative Card Crew challenge, which is vintage) , and an Impression Obsession sentiment stamp from this set. I don't know if you can see them, but in the bottom left corner, I glued three tiny seashells. I'll send this one along to my daughter, a busy Mum of four little boys, along with a "treat-yourself" coffee card.
I wanted to use spring colours today, so these two cards were created with the fabulous new "Cover-a-Card" Flourish stamp. They're HUGE, and so easy to stamp with the Mega Mount a 6" by 6" acrylic handle that rocks gently as you stamp. You can see the full line of Cover a Card stamps here...worth a look...SO versatile!! These cards fit with the Everybody Art Challenge,which is spring; Gingersnap Creation's Spring Growth and Renewal;" the current Pick Three challenge, and challenge # 4 over at Paper Garden Projects, which is embossing.
I stamped and embossed several pretty colours with this background stamp, so now I have oodles of delightful hearts and butterflies to use!
