Mothers Day Card - Imaginarium Designs


The months are quickly vanishing, I cannot believe we are now in May - that is nearly half way through yet another year!  May brings Mothers day, and what a perfect excuse to create a card for my Mother in law, as part of my Imaginarium Designs design team creation for May.

My Mother in law is 91 this year, and has not had the best year health-wise, so I am hoping this card will raise a smile, and let her know that she is loved and missed.

The "Mum for Cards" (IDW0021) chipboard piece was coated with texture paste, which left a lovely uneven surface, and then a covering of white Gesso was applied to prime the piece for the distress inks,  'Stormy Sky' and 'Walnut Stain'.  The distress inks seep into the crevices and give off various colour hues.

The Small Butterflies (IDT0014) were painted in the same manner, minus the texture paste. All surfaces received a generous coat of Glossy Accents.


You can purchase all chipboard pieces in my projects from Seriously Scrapbooking, and this includes International customers.  Also, please call over to the Imaginarium Designs Blog and check out the other Design Team members and their beautiful creations.  You also have the chance to WIN a chipboard pack by leaving a comment on the blog.
Till next time
