Happy Mother’s Day! Mine has been wonderfully mellow! I’ve had to time to hang out, clean up my craft room, make some crafty purchases, and squeeze in a card for this week’s Papertrey Make It Monday challenge. I pulled out Garden Gate since it needs some love and used the stamp set for all of the images on the card.
Looking at it now that I’m done, I wish I would have used a softer colored grey ink since it feels too strong. Oh well, live and learn. It makes a nice background but since’s it’s a pretty busy sentiment, it would have been better if it would have disappeared a bit more. I also pulled out my Spectrum Noir pens to smooth out the Hollyhock coloring. My stamps need some more seasoning so the ink was a bit splotchy. Well that’s about it for what I wish I would have done better. Hope you are enjoying the blog hop! Abbreviated supply list is below….need to get going on dinner.
Supplies: Garden Gate stamp set (Papertrey); Raspberry Fizz, Scarlet Jewel, Bright Buttercup, New leaf, Green Parakeet ink (Papertrey); Soft granite ink (Hero Arts); Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens; sequins, twine
