CASology Challenge #296 - Parent


Hi there blog friends ~
I've been working on my DT projects for the past several days, but the doors are about to close on one of my favorite challenges, and I wanted to play along. This week's cue card at CASology is 'Parent', so I thought it was a great opportunity to create a Mother's Day card for my mom ~



I've been on the hunt for this retired PTI stamp set for ages and finally found someone who was selling some of her gently used stamp sets...I used a few Altenew inks gifted to me by a sweet friend for the vases and added some teeny-tiny enamel dots with Nuvo drops for the Orchid. 

Thanks so much for stopping by,






Supplies
Stamps: PTI - Gracious Vases; Clearly Besotted Stamps - Fresh Flowers (sentiment)
Inks: Memento - London Fog; Altenew - Sweet Leaf,  Coral Berry, Aqualicious
Misc: Nuvo Crystal Drops - Caribbean Ocean; Spectrum Noir - Clear Sparkle Pen; Lucy's Gems - Ice Cube Mix

Such a lovely card, Barb. You have used one of my favorite stamp sets. I just love the delicate design, and how you stamped your sentiment in a soft grey, and right atop your images. Pinning this one to CASE. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

so classy, Barb - all the white space and soft colors are so pretty - funny thing my stamping friend here in england just gave me that stamp set (just the vases)-need to find some flowers that will work with them.
