Happy 70th Birthday Mum xxxx

Today it is my Mum's 70th Birthday, so I've made her a little card.

I used Penny Black's 'Dreaming Geraniums' and raised up parts of the image using Pinflair gel, it isn't easy to see the 3d-ness of the card but have taken a side shot where you can just see it.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and used Stickles to highlight the flowers.

Promarkers used are -
  • Rabbit - Ivory, Vanilla, Apricot, Pastel Pink
  • Pot - Satin, Tan, Terracotta
  • Leaves & grass - Lime Zest, Leaf Green
  • Ivy - Fresh Meadow, Soft Green
  • Flowers - Antique Pink, Lipstick Red
  • Outline of the image - Pastel Blue
I'm going out with Mum and Dad for lunch today and then we have a few little surprises lined up for her during the week - sssshhhhhhhhhhhh

I am also entering this card into the following challenges - Penny Black and more at allsorts - Anything Goes and Penny Black Saturday Challenge - floral fantasy

Other supplies used -
  • Sentiments - LOTV and Hero Arts
  • Papers - magazine freebies
  • EK Success daisy and butterfly punches
  • Martha Stewart border punch
  • SU framelit dies
  • Woodware leaf punch
Have a very lovely birthday Mum xxxx
