The theme for this week's challenge from Pattie's Creations is Mother's Day, since we celebrate Moms in the US on Sunday. For my Mother's Day card, I've chosen the Roses in a Milk Bottle from Pattie's Etsy store. I printed the image three times. Once for the main image, one to pop dot the roses, and one to make a mask for my (very) subtle background.
Spellbinders Grand Ovals die was used to cut the main image out. Once this was done, I fussy cut out the mask and temporarily adhered it on top of the main image so I could sponge my Mini Chunky Chevron template pattern from Companion's Workshop onto the background with chalk inks. It's pretty subtle in person (which is what I wanted), but not as subtle as it is in the photo.
Once that was completed, both the entire image, as well as my additional rose blossoms, was colored with Copic markers. I added Orchid Rose and Frosted Carmine glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to the outlines of the rose petals for an extra bit of bling. I also created a glittery border with double sided tape and the Orchid Rose glitter. Moms deserve all the sparkle they can get!
Now it's your turn to create a Mother's Day card and upload it to the Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. You have two weeks and you double your chances of winning if you use a Pattie's Creations image. Full details are listed on the PCDC blog.
