We love you Mom!

Hi!  The Funkie Junkie Inspiration Ave is highlighting the love of our mothers, mother figures or other mentors who have inspired us. 

I wanted to do a monochromatic card using the brushstrokes die flower.  I tried it with just plain white but I wanted it to have more depth and decided that the soft lavender would help to give it a softness but highlight the shadows. 


The dies were cut from white cardstock and then sprayed with the distress oxide ink.  Then they were sponged with paper towel to dab off the excess color.  This gave a lovely speckled effect. 

The background was stamped using the same distress oxide stain spray on the rubber stamp and pressed onto the white cardstock.  This created a soft background that coordinated with the flowers.  

The layers of the flower were attached using a small thin foam dot.  This gave the flower some depth without too much height.   

The leaves were sponged with a dye ink over the sprayed background and tucked into the flowers.  The sentiment was cut up from multiple theories blocks and placed across the cardfront.

This is to celebrate all the strong women who care for others every day!
