Mother's Day Cards

Just poppin in for a quick update so that I can get myself back into better blogging habits (of course if I stopped reading vampire romance/mystery novels I would get more stuff done!)

This is the card that I made for my Mom for Mother's day:
The background is glossy card stock with Alcohol inks.

Here you can see the effect of the metallic mixative:

For my Mother-in-law:

This is a solid image stamp (you know the normal "blank" space is filled in) and I clear embossed the image and then used small pieces of my blending pads to color the image in with distress inks. You'll notice this card says "Thank You" - well I made two of these cards and I forgot to take a pic of the one that said Happy Mothers Day.

Happy Creating!
KAT

The stuff:
All stamps are Hero Arts (thanks for letting my borrow your stamps Suz!)

Loved the blending of the distress inks on the 2nd card - I can never manage to create that subtle a blend.

Love the first card too - anything, in fact, with alcohol inks - it's very striking.
