Good Morning, Kara here.
Dawn has handed me the reins this week to share my projects using the April 2014 Release products. I have tons to share, so let's get started!
Today I want to celebrate the mothers and mother figures in our lives.
My mom loves bright color so I chose to use a Cupid's Bow Cardstock base. I stamped a sentiment onto White Cardstock from Strictly Sentiments 4. This set has big, bold sentiments perfect the focal point of your card front as well as wonderful sentiments for the inside. I think it's beautiful that Dawn included the sentiment, "You've always been like a mother to me" in this set, honoring all kinds of families.
I couldn't resist adding a bird from the Birds & Branches Frame die. I colored him using Wild Mango Dye Ink and a sponge dauber. The coverage from the WPlus9 Dye Inks is so smooth it looks like colored cardstock!
For my next card, I have used another sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4.
It is heat embossed in white and acts as a resist for the watercolor. To create the background, I used watercolor paper spritzed with water, and added spray mists directly from the bottle, one color at a time. I let each color run and dry before adding the next layer of color.
I loved the drips and shapes made by the color, so I left it super simple!
My final card for today is perfect to say 'Thank You' for all your mom has done for you over the years. If she's anything like my mom, there's a lot to say thank you for!
Strictly Sentiments 4 has got you covered.
This card starts with my favorite color cardstock, Lake House, as it's card base.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I'll be back tomorrow with a few more projects showcasing the April 2014 Release products.
I hope to see you there!
