For Mum! Happy Mother's Day


In keeping up with my New Years Resolution, yes month number 4!! I am trying my hand at coloring!
This is the first time I actually enjoyed coloring a stamped image! Yippee!!
I also think I finally got the Spellbinders figured out LOL! Of course I still used my Cricut to cut my circle.
I used Copic Markers, and Crayola colored pencils with baby oil and blending stumps to color my image.



Circle is cut from Pagoda Cricut Cartridge
Spellbinders Large Scalloped Octagons
Papers from DCWV Flower Shower
Stitching with my sewing machine
Humphrey's Corner Collection Chocolate box
Liquid Pearls

I hand stamped this elephant from the Chocolate Box collection. Heat embossed and colored with Copic Markers and colored pencils. I sewed the papers using my sewing machine. I used Spellbinders to cut the scallop circle. This is an adorable handmade Mother's Day card.
