Read any good books lately? Frilly and Funkie Challenge

I weaved the background on kraft cardstock and embellished with wooden die cuts, book pages and gold accents. These are very shinny gold pieces and made photographing difficult. I like the end results for entry into Frilly and Funkie challenge.

Making background paper two ways, click on the picture to enlarge and see details.

The sun shining on the background paper is stamped only a shade darker yellow. I fussy cut the cute images and popped them up to give dimension to this simple card.

This backgrounds flower image is created by brushing your stamp with glue and stamp glue image all over white cardstock. I sprinkled gilding flakes over it, pressed in well then brushed off. Distressing with blue helped bring out the shiny floral background.

Mother's Day to my Mom

Stamp CTMH stamp of the month set #S1601 with CTMH dye ink in well re-inked color Tulip.
Even though this color is retired, it's still a favorite of mine. I used MISTI to get the vivid color by restamping several times on the flowers and stems. I stamped again in black to pop the colors.

Photographing this card with the gold shiny paper cause a glare no matter how I took this set which includes a pop-up stand street light and coordination envelope I also made.

I hope you all had a happy Mom's day and thank you for stopping by my blog.
