Mother's Day Ladies

Hi Everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful spring weather wherever you are. The kids are having such a great time outside in the afternoon. I have been busy still working on items for the craft fair. I think once May comes I will probably be soooo ready to take a break! This week I'm working on Mother's Day cards and some more patriotic cards. I am posting the Mother's Day cards here and putting the patriotic cards in my SCS gallery, so be sure to check them out as well. Would love to know what you think of them.
For these cards I used the OCL set "Vintage Roses" This set is so beautiful!! This one is actually my mom's; but I think I will definitely have to procure one of my own. I got some new Copic Markers from Eclectic Paperie and I used them primarily to color in the skin of the ladies. I couldn't believe the difference it made instead of just coloring with one skin tone color.
For the first card I used Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy and Always Artichoke. I stamped the Artichoke piece with the Fine Lace background stamp. I cut the scalloped Burgundy circle using the Petite scallop circle Nestabilities. I stamped the lady with Basic Brown ink and used a combination of Copics, SU markers and pencils with blender pens to fill her in. I used Tea Dye and Antique Linen Distress inks around the image.
For the second card I used Cameo Coral, Ruby Red and Not Quite Navy. The pattern paper is from SU's "Pink Flamingo" collection. Again I used Copics, SU markers and pencils to color in the lady. This was a simple card to do, so I won't bore you with the details.
The last card I have to share with you today uses one of the simpler stamps from this set; but one that I think is just as elegant. I used Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand and Rose Red for this one. I stamped the Rose Red piece with the SU Floral background stamp. The hat and glove image was colored with ink pads, pencil, watercolor crayons to fill them in.
So, that's all for me today. I'll be back again in a couple of days with some more goodies. Have a great afternoon!
