Mother's Day Card

Gosh - it's been a whole week since I posted a card. 
Tammy is still feeling unwell ~ I seem to be catching every bug that's going around. I so hope that I pass nothing on to my lovely Grand-Daughter...I have her today whilst her Mummy is working a double shift. Fingers crossed!
Tomorrow is Teddy Bo Tuesday and the start of a new Challenge. This digi stamp is one of the new ones, isn't it just gorgeous? Though I have changed the boots - using adobe I cloned Bea's knitting on to the tops of the boots. So now she looks like she owns her very Uggs. It's amazing what you can achieve with digital stamps. The MUM wording I filled with patterned paper from a PcCrafter set I had.

Added some glitter and gems around Bea. I decided to go for a stronger colour this time when colouring Bea in. I usually got for putty and tan with my pro-markers but this time I have used ~
sandstone - caramel and cocoa
For her boots I used ~ putty - tan - sandstone & caramel. 
For her trousers and hat I used cornflower and blue pearl....lightened a little by using the blending pen.

Used a little silicone glue to give 3D effect on the wording. Stands out well. Flowers are as always from my Wild Orchid Craft stash - a must have for any card maker. Link is on my side bar.

I also found this useful chart whilst googling the other day. Basicially shows colours that blend well together. Very useful indeed. Well, I must shoot as Holly as arrived, so need to put a few craft things away.
Enjoy the sunny day.
Loads of Love
