Creation Station, Mother's Day

Mother's Day is the theme for this week's Creation Station blog hop.  I created these design's for the occasion this year.  They were both well received in class last weekend!

This first design features the Swallowtail stamp heat embossed in black on Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I then coloured the stunning butterfly with sponge daubers in a range of purple hues - Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry and a little Blackberry Bliss.  I added splashes of Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey ink with an aqua painter to achieve the watercoloured spots effect.  To finish I chose a sentiment from the And Many More set, then a strip of gold foil card and some gold sequins.

I loved the gold and purple colour scheme of the first project so much I made another design featuring these tones.  This card layers gold patterned vellum, dry embossed wisteria wonder card and a doily beneath a tag of Naturals Ivory card.  Flowers from the Bloom with Hope set decorate the tag.  These were coloured with Wisteria Wonder blendabilities and a touch of Rich Razzleberry.  The sentiment is from the versatile Teeny Tiny Sentiments set.
