Tiddly Inks Challenge #2 Mothers Day This is the card I made for the Tiddly Inks Challenge #2. This is for my Grandson Ryder to give to his Mommy for Mother's Day.
The image is "Heartfelt" from Tiddly Inks.....(Perfect match for Ryder). I used watercolor pencils w/gamsol to color him , and stickles on his little flowers. The paper for the main card is S.U, close to cocoa . The other 2 browns and beige and white were scraps in my stash. The small flowers are done with a S.U. punch and cupped on a foam mat. The little leaves were cut from a random heart punch and cupped on the mat also. The gems are from my stash. I used the S.U. scallopped punch for some of the edges. C.B heart and swiss dot folders were used on the brown paper.
I had some little brown and amber colored beads in my crafting box that I put in the center of the large flower. These were attached into the center of the flower with Crystal Laquer.
"I HEART Mommy" was done in photoshop.

Close-up of the paper flower..... It's the first time I made these, and am surprised at how sturdy they become after they are dry! I saw the tutorial for these flowers on Splitcoast Stampers. I made the leaves with the same method,but I used the small oval from S.U. and clipped around the edges with pinking shears before wetting the paper. FUN STUFF!

This is the inside of the card. Sentiment was done on photoshop....My son Eric helped me decide what to write. The little boy in the picture is my grandson Ryder.....I chose the image for the front of the card because the scruffy hair reminded me of Ryder's hair. I enhanced his hair a bit on photoshop to make it look more scruffy than usual for this card. We thought his hair was like a little Mon Chi Chi pet when he was newborn. Love this kid!!
