While this holiday is a joyous one for most of us, but for some it's touched with pain... not being able to spend it with their beloved mothers. My cards today are in honor of those men and women who are celebrating the memories of their mothers.
GinaK's new Not Forgotten stamp set is a godsend for cardmakers who desire to send out a card for just such an occasion as this one. I paired the set for my first card with Asela Hopkin's Friendship's Garden.
My next card uses GinaK's Tropical Flowers and Take Flight stamp sets, along with more of the Rough and Rugged Digital Papers, also from GinaK. It's also the card I'm using for PaperCraft Planet's Sketch Challenge this week.
I stamped the leaves in black memento ink directly on the digital papers for a silhouette look. The butterfly was stamped twice on vellum in versamark ink and embossed with SU's Iridescent Ice embossing powder.
Then, I took a light green Copic marker and colored the backside of the cut out butterfly. After layering it, I added some pearls for the body.
I hope this Mother's Day weekend is filled with wonderful memories of your mother and all she means and has meant to you.
Happy Mother's Day to my mom Linda and my mother-in-law Sandy!
I love you both!
