Happy Mother's Day, you're blooming marvellous!

Evening bloggers, I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend. 
For those of you who are Mums, I wish you a Happy Mothering Sunday, hopefully you've been pampered & received gorgeous gifts & cards.

Here's the Mother's Day card I made for my Mum.

It features the Mini Flowers stamp set from Woodware.

This stamp set is very versatile & suitable for many occasions.

Here I have stamped each flower onto white card stock with black archival ink & coloured with a combination of promarkers, the new Spectrum Aqua Pens from Crafter's Companion and a touch of gold cosmic shimmer shimmer paint 
from Creative Expressions.

I cut out each flower & shaped them with my fingers. I snipped into the top right flower to create fronds.

The background was created by embossing a piece of duck egg card stock with  a Creative Expressions mask  inked lightly afterwards with peacock feather distress ink & highlighted with a touch of Treasure Gold gilding wax.

I hand drew the flower stalks directly onto the card with a pigma micron black fineliner.
 The leaves & smallest 'pointy' flower were also hand drawn onto white card stock & coloured with promarkers, cut, shaped & stuck into place with cosmic shimmer dries clear PVA glue.

The 'Happy Mother's Day' banner was stamped onto cream card, inked around the edges with peacock feathers distress inks, mat & layered onto orange card, shaped into a wave with an inverted v & glued top right of the card.

I also lightly decorated the inside of the card too.
