The Crafter's Cafe - Embellies with a Twist - Mother's Day

This week at The Crafter's Cafe the Daily Challenge for Monday - Embellies with a Twist - is to make a Mother's Day card.

I have recently enjoyed learning how to make shaped cards after being inspired by the Hero Arts Blog shaped cards technique challenge this month.  You can see some other shaped cards I made here.  Some of which include Hero Arts stamps.

Anyway, back to this week's challenge and here is the card I made for the challenge which is another shaped card since I enjoyed making them so much!

Mother's Day card

The image is from The Stamping Boutique. I printed it and cut it our using my Spellbinder circles die and sponged the edge with green ink. I coloured the image using copics. I mounted the image onto lime green card that I had cut using the largest classic scalloped circle die. Lastly I added the twine (my embellishment) and the sentiment (computer generated as I don't have any Mother's Day stamps)

Image: The Stamping Boutique - Tulips
Ink: Green (Tea leaves, I think from memory)
Cardstock: Lime green, white and red
Other: Spellbinder classic circles and scallops, The Twinery - red and white twine, Copics.

I would encourage you to take part in this challenge.  It is a lot of fun and there is also some candy up for grabs for anyone who has entered in our Monday challenges.  All entries from the first challenge till this Sunday29th April will have a chance to win the candy, and Mr. Random will choose a winner.  So if you haven't yet joined us for an "Embellies with a Twist" challenge, please join us and you will have a chance to win this wonderful candy.
