Enough of my car woes on to the first challenge in 2015 for We Do Doobadoo challenges and the theme this fortnight is "Romantic Whites". I thought I'd be canny and catch up with all my "Mother's Day" card (well in advance) ....
I have had this glitter handmade paper for eons and never really liked the off white/off grey colour so it has sat languishing in a box ... not any more! I decided to use the brick stencil and Maimeri white acrylic paint to create my background. Once dry, I liberally applied fine white pearlescent pan pastel which has made the background all glittery and pearlescent.
I then layered a doily, hand cut heart, honeycomb softboard and a large paper rose on top of the backing paper.
I created a border strip using the corner flourish laser cuts, mounting them on to white card and then cutting around them to create a mock banner style border. I added a laser cut lock to the heart and "Mum" die cut lettering, all again covered with fine white pearlescent pan pastel.
As additional decoration, I added a laser cut key to the rose wire stem and some laser art butterflies with little laser art hearts. I am quite pleased how this turned out and also that it came together quite quickly.
Okay I'm off to catch up on some zzzzzz's. Have a great weekend,
