Lotstodo - Spring is in the Air


This is the mothers day card I made for my mum. I used dye based adirondack inks with hero arts stamps, inked them up and spritzed them with water to give a watercoloured effect. I then masked the flowers off and stamped the script background in willow adirondack. I stamped the letters individually, cut them out and used foam pads on some to raise them

Edited - she wasn't impressed with it!!!!!

I don't know what was wrong with it, but she took it out the envelope, looked at it for all of 2 seconds, said thanks and put it away again!!!!!

So that kinda got me thinking that she wasn't very impressed with it!!!
