Mother’s Day card

I’m dating this to publish after Mother’s Day – she may be back to checking my blog !!

I am really pleased with this – lots of o-o-o-o-o-ld techniques and stampsĀ that I used at the start of my stamping journey, and you forget how gorgeous they can be ! I was completely inspired by Jacqueline fromĀ  Jacqueline’s Craft Nest, although I can’t find the card I was specifically inspired by – sorry ! But her site is a gorgeous way to get some inspiration !

So my old techniques – alcohol ink on glossy card (then couldn’t remember what ink you needed to stamp with on glossy !) and versamark ‘shadowing’ on the base card

* images – floral ones are all old Hero Arts ( from over 10 yrs ago probably !)

* sentiment ? – one of the first I ever bought as just rubber, when that option wasnt even really available in the UK !

I hope Mum likes it !
