Mother's Day Card

Howdy y'all.  Welcome back to my blog.  I have a card to show tonight that uses some of the roses and flowers that I dyed using my homemade alcohol inks. I used a Rick St. Dennis image to make this card and printed it out on a new card stock that I found at AC Moore.  It's from Crafter's Companion, the company that makes the Spectrum Noir pens.  I ran out of my Neenah and needed some card stock so I picked up two packs of 25 for $8.

So, what do you think?  The roses and the small silk flowers are dyed with the homemade alcohol inks. 

I colored the image with Chromatix pens.  I trimmed down the image, matted it on a panel of pink and then a panel of black.  The DPs are from Authentique and MME.  The card base is made from Bazzill Blackbird card stock.   The sentiment is from Beccy Muir and is included in the Rose Bouquet set.   I had to add the main sentiment to the inside, because there just wasn't room on the front to add the Scripture from Proverbs 31. 

I just kept adding embellies until I liked the look of it.  There are pearls, lace, flowers, acetate flowers, acrylic sprays, pearl sprays.  And for one of my challenges that I am entering this card in, I had to have ribbon.  I couldn't add anything else to the card, so there is ribbon on the image itself.  I hope that qualifies.  It's a little sneaky, but the ribbon is there.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope y'all have a great evening.  God bless.
