Marvelous Mums

Two special cards made for two special ladies. The top one for my mum and the second one for my mother in law. I was inspired to make this background after seeing Beccy from Beccy's Place had been making her own backgrounds with left over paper scraps. I loved the idea so thought I'd have a go and I love the result!

I have recently started an online colouring course with Kit & Clowder and so far have only completed the basic skin shading. I am so happy at how quickly my colouring has changed and recommend it to everyone! I used one of my new dies called Plum Blossom from Spellbinders for extra detail.

Finally I mounted all the parts onto the background with 3D foam to give it some dimension.

Paper - Me to You mothers day pack
Embellishments -Plum blossoms die from Spellbinders
Sentiments - Craftwork Cards
Image - One of my challenge wins! - Chloe with daffodils coloured with ProMarkers from Pink Gem Designs
