Jane is our hostess at CAS Colours and Sketches this month and she has chosen a lovely set of colours to kick off the month. I decided to make an alternative Mothering Sunday card so that my Mum and my MIL both get something a little different but using the same stamp.
I have followed the sketch from The Paper Players Challenge #284, a lovely sketch by Claire. I didn't want to use newsprint, though I do love it, so have represented this element with my notebook stamp. My card need to be very CAS for our challenge so for the background I embossed a piece of white cardstock with some simple diagonal stripes and edged it with a stripe inked by my computer to match the Mint Macaron. The flowers and leaves are from different Uniko sets; the solid background rose was stamped with second generation ink giving a lighter tint than the detail rose. The sentiment is computer-generated in white again on a background to match with our colour palette.
Stamps: Flower Power 6 & Beautiful Blooms 1 (Uniko Studio), PMA 907003 (Papermania)
Texture Plate: Diagonals (Sizzix)
Inkpads: Scarlet & Celadon (VersaColor), Green Green (Whisper)
Sentiment Font: Candara
Snippets: White cardstock
Now all I have to do is decide which card to give to which Mum! Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you get a chance to join in with our colour challenge this week!
