Mothers Day and Indigo Blu
Mothers Day. or more correctly, Mothering Sunday cards handed out, so now I can post them up. These were the Indigo Blu, Blazing Poppies panels that I stamped and coloured. The Poppies themselves are coloured with Promarkers, and the shading around them with Distress Inks.
After the shading, each was matted onto a matching cardstock, and then a medallion was punched, using the punch shown. This was cut out leaving a narrow border, then trimmed diagonally in half, to give a couple of ornate photo corners for each one.
Next up the embossed lines were created for the panel to sit inside.The base card is an A4 sheet of white pearlescent folded in half.
The long panels are added between the lines, and the main panel slightly overlaps this.
Fortunately,I'd used foam tape to add the panel, as it was only checking how well the photo had come out that I realised I had placed the pink cards panel upside down! But it peeled off with out any damage, and re- stuck down.
As the only Mothers Day stamp I have is too large for the front of this card, I again used up some peel-offs for the sentiment.
