My mojo seems to be returning slowly as I managed to make a card over the weekend for my mum who celebrates her birthday tomorrow. I needed to do this as unfortunately I was unable to make a Mother's Day and I felt very guilty about this.
My mum, like me, loves teddy bears so for me the perfect stamp was one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, Gentlest Kiss. I adore this stamp and was very lucky to purchase it half price at Ally Pally last year. The papers are from a Papermania Henbury Lane set and match perfectly with the cardstock I'd chosen. I think I over-Glimmer Misted my large rose though as the petals opened up a bit too much, hopefully they still look okay.
Stamps: Gentlest Kiss - Penny Black; Happy Birthday - Woodware; Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black & Copics
DP & CS: Henbury Lane - Papermania & Core'dinations
Tools: Circle & Scallop Nesties, Love Language CB Folder, Martha Stewart Lace Valentine Punch
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Craft Roses, Glimmer Mist, Ribbon
I don't know what everyone else uses for their copic colouring, but my favourite is Ryman's Brilliant White Super Smooth. It blends really nicely and evenly.
