Welcome to the There She Goes "Mother of all blog hops!" Don't know what I'm talking about? Then pop by the TSG Blog for all the info and start hopping from the beginning ;) What is the "Mother of all blog hops"? Well it's where a million and one card makers got together in honor of Mother's Day to show you some lovely creations with the TSG stamps....and give you the chance to win oodles of free stamps as well a chance to help design a TSG Stamp Set!!!!! I know I'm excited :D
So let's get started shall we? If you have arrived from Kimberly Stouffer's blog the you are absolutely in the right place. If you have some how stumbled upon my blog, then you must start back at the TSG blog in order to enter for a chance to win and start the hop in order :)
This card was made with both the Everyday Greetings set and the fantastic Bloom set. The flowers were heat embossed with a mixture of Ranger Gold and Gold Tinsel embossing powders to add some pretty, yet understated sparkle to the image. I then water coloured it with my Tombow Dual Brush Markers and a water brush. The main coloured paper is actually sponged with various inks to create a back drop to match my image since I didn't have any designer paper in the right shades of purples and blues. This is a really easy tip to do when you are stuck for papers and your local scrapbook store is closed for the evening ;)
Now that you have seen my goods, you are off to Michelle Van Patten's blog to have some more fun and to hopefully leave a little more love along the way ;) To all the wonderful mother's and mom's-to-be out there, have a wonderful Mother's Day!
Happy hopping everyone!
