I can't believe it is day three of my week as a GIU gal.
It is always amazing how fast the week goes when you are having so much fun.
I wanted to get started on my Mother's Day cards.
If you know me, you know that I am a sucker for flowers.
I don't know how many flower stamps I own but I can't resist buying more.
That is one of the reasons I chose this set from Unity.
I was inspired by this piece of art that had these
beautiful red flowers surrounded by a dark grey background,
I wish I had a copy or link so I could share.
It is stuck in my memory.
I use that same idea but not as dark.
Especially since I was thinking about Mother's Day.
I chose to go with blues and grays.
After I was finished coloring I thought the background was a little flat.
So I dug out a stencil and some distress ink and added the background.
I used my test piece on my second card.
It turned out so nice that I could not throw it out.
the only difference is that I colored the flowers a little darker on the square card.
As you can seen I might just bee hooked on stamping on Vellum.
I love how it adds the softness to the sentiment.
