More Mother's Day

Hi Everyone!

I have three more Mother's Day cards to share with you. I'm almost done with my cards for the craft fair. (Yippee!!)
The first card I did is for OCL's sketch challenge. I used Old Olive, Teal, Celery and Blush Blossom for my color palette. I colored the image with Copics and SU markers. The rest is really straightforward..
So on to the second card, which is for Tuesday Morning sketches. I also combined this with SCS color challenge to use Suede, Saffron and TQ. I didn't have enough Suede so I substituted Close to Cocoa. It's a bit hard to see in the photo; but I did stamp the larger Saffron piece with the Fine Lace Background stamp. I used the Birds and Swirls embossing folder on the smaller strips and Label 1 Nestabilities for the image. The hat and glove image is from the same "Vintage Roses" set (OCL) that I used in the first card. I used markers and watercolor crayons to fill it in. The last card is for the MMSC challenge. A few days ago, while blurfing around various blogs I came across one in which someone had done some button flower images and I just thought it was the cutest thing ever! So, I decided to give a go at it and thought this sketch would be perfect for it. I used Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, white and a small bit of Yo Yo Yellow (yes, Yo Yo Yellow!) I didn't even have to stamp anything on this one! (except the sentiment at the bottom) I drew the stems and leaves with a green marker and then threaded some light green thread through each button and then adhered them with mini glue dots. Easy Peasy!!!
Ok, so that's all for me today. Hope to go around and visit a bit later. For now, I'm off to set up my table and get to work!
