Hi all and today it's time for another challenge over at Marvelous Magnolia, where this weeks theme is Anything Goes. It's sure to be a popular one so make sure you come along and play! Why not head over there now using the link above to check out the fabulous prizes in store, a great new way of choosing Top Spots to give equal opportunity to all levels of experience of crafters, and of course for some fabulous inspiration from the talented design team!
I have made a card for 'Mum' with Mothers Day just around the corner here (or a little bit later if your across the pond of course!) - I love how that highlights the beaity of blogging and bringing people together from all around the world! Anyway enough rambling on from me, here's my card...
Scrummy papers are Maja Design and edges have been inked, distressed and sewn. I've added some cheesecloth to add to the shabby effect. I've also just purchased some Core'diantaions Whitewash cardstock that I've been after for AGES!!! - I'm totally smitten with it allready, see the beautiful shabby whitewash surface, which then reveals a richer colour core - stunning!...another item on the 'basic must have list!' ha ha.
Notice the Tim Holtz tissue tape strips that I am just LOVING at the mo! I take the adhesive off the ends by pressing onto fabric, then they kind of just curl back by themselves.
Image is Tilda with chicken and egg from the new Little Easter collection & she has been coloured with Distress Inks & highlighted with crystal Glamour Dust.
I made the 'Mum' banner with letters by Pion design, cut out & mounted on foam pads onto a banner shape cut from papers from the Maja collection, then set with eyelets to finish. Banners are HOT right now arn't they?!!
Above shows the inner decorated with pretty and heart-felt sentiments from HOTP CD-rom perfect for expressing your Motherly love!
