MWT at OWH* USE A DIGI and Mojo Monday MM230

GAH!!!! Really? A digi? Have you been reading my blog? Yes? Then you know I don’t like to color!!! *SIGH* OK I did it; I colored a digi today and maybe it came out ok. By the way, this is my second post for today. If you missed the first one, please click here.

Here is the card which was made using Mojo Monday’s MM230 sketch, however I rotated the sketch so that the digi would fit properly:


Well, actually, I tried 3 new things on this card, coloring, using vellum (yeah, LOL first time!) and using Distress Ink in my embossing folder.  I made the BG by inking the negative area of my Tim Holtz embossing folder with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and slightly spraying water on it with a mister.  I then carefully placed the paper into the folder and embossed. I used my heat tool to completely dry the paper when it came out. You could just lay it aside to let it dry, but I am impatient!


Those flowers are my crochet flowers; the leaves are from the starter set that comes with the Presto Punch. The ribbon is an old scrap from my stash


I colored the flowers with markers and then chalked where the sentiment is located. I used a Gold pen to go over the words and added “Mom” stamped in gold just above the existing sentiment. I finished it by covering with VersaMark embossing ink and SU Clear embossing powder, then heated with my heat tool.  Oh, I should say this gorgeous digi is from the free downloads at OWH!  The light strip with yellow flowers is punched using a Martha Stewart double-edge punch.


I added the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment on vellum and hope it was not overkill!  I had that pink vellum just begging to get on this card. The Mother’s Day stamp is from Inspired by Stamping.
