Bloggers Challenge - For Mom


Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  With Mother's Day this weekend, today's Bloggers Challenge Theme is to create something for Mom.  I'm sure the BC players must think I'm losing it, giving them this challenge on the Friday before Mother's Day.  When I sat down to create my card, I did want to kick myself, after all, just how  many Mother's Day cards does one need to create?  So feel free to create a "girlfriend" card, I consider my mom a "girlfriend"!  While I was tempted to go that route with my card, I opted for a nice Watering Can full of flowers, and just the sentiment Mom, so I can use it for any occasion.


All stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs, the Watering Can is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor Paper, then colored using the Marker Water Coloring Technique.  If you stopped by earlier this week, you'll notice I pulled out my newest favorite tool again.  The edges are distressed using the Distrezz-it-All, I sure do love this thing!  My family still can't understand what all the noise is coming from my studio, they said they never knew stamping could be so loud!

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs
Ink - Markers, Black Archival, Creamy Caramel
Card Stock - Watercolor, Black, Bordering Blue
Other - Distrezz-it-All, Donna Salazar Pattern Paper, Sponge Dauber, H20 Brush

Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

Lisa--I LOVE it! Great Vintage look to it and belongs right outside our doors now that it's Spring.
Have to tell you--I ordered the Alice in wonderland--from Artisic Outpost, ask for the mounted set--they CALLED me and said OOS--but for no extra charge they'd send me some S&P sheets--with unmounted--got it 2 days later--now that's GOOD Customer Service--Hugs, Nola
