Hello Mom!

Hi friends - I am SO excited to be a part of the Butterfly Reflections design team, so very excited!

My boss requested a mother's day card, I said "what colors are you thinking"; he stared at me blankly for a solid minute and said "she wears black, that's all she wears"; well me too buddy, so we can do this! ;)

I made sure the background had some fun black (actually light AND dark gray) going on using a stencil and added lots of color and dimension to the gorgeous flowers from Concord and 9th, Hello Lovely set. The image was embossed twice, once on Ranger water color paper and once on Copic card stock for the pieces cut to add dimension.




The image was colored with Tombow makers and a water brush. I splashed on lots of color from various inks watered down slightly. Fun, messy and colorful - I used a WPlus9 set for the inside and some washi tape to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by; have a GREAT hump day!

Hugs,
