Mojo Mother's Day

I love my mom. She's always supportive. She's caring. She's helpful. She's generous. She laughs with me. She's amazing. When she says something, I often listen and in March, she mentioned, offhandedly, that I make a lot of cards I never send! So, for mother's day, I worked up a card. OK, I designed it this morning and gave  it to her. She gushed as a mom should. She's that great.

Note: I really am not proud of this picture. I took it and never checked it before giving the card away. So this is as good as it gets!

Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers, Best Wishes and More
Paper: So Saffron, A Walk in the Park, Kiwi Kiss, Very Vanilla
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Almost Amethyst, Basic Gray
Accessories: 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, Latte Buttons, Blender pen

The sketch idea is a fabulous one from Mojo Monday 84.

I did last week's as a scrapbook page, but didn't upload in time, so tonight, I am getting it just under the wire! 

To color the image, I used a masking technique with the blender pen. I inked my stamp in Kiwi Kiss and "erased" the flower parts with a blender pen. I then inked the flowers with an Almost Amethyst marker. I think Kiwi Kiss was left on the stamp, so it changed the color a bit, but I like it. 

The sentiment is from Best Wishes and More. I inked up the first half stamped, washed it, and then inked up the second part. 

Happy Stamping!
