Afro American Mother's Day Card!
Good Afternoon Everyone,
In my part of the world we are still experiencing problems associated with too much rain... flash flood warnings ...flooding basements etc. According to the news, some people have really had a problem with flooding basements and backed up sewers! Thank goodness we haven't had any problems with backed up sewers in my area...Yuck! Still...My husband and I have been concerned about all the rain and we are keeping an eye on our basement for signs of water. So far...all is well and I hope that our basement continues to stay dry!
In the meantime, I would like to share with you an African American Mother's Day card, a RAK from Jamee and an award from Kyoko!
The stamp I used to make my Mother's Day card is from the Rubbernecker Stamp Company. I found some of the most beautiful and rare African American stamps on the Rubbernecker site and I had to have them! I kept my card clean and simple and when I find the right Mother's Day sentiment, I will attach it. For some reason.....none of my sentiments "felt right". I hate when this happens to me because at the end of the day, I will most likely end up with the sentiment that caught my attention in the first place!
After I finished coloring my image with my Copic Markers, I felt the background scene was too busy for my particular needs and trimmed off that part of the stamped image.
After carefully trimming around my image, I adhered her to a separate piece card stock with Tombow Multi liquid glue. In my opinion, this glue is fantastic and once it takes hold, you don't have to worry about your card falling apart on you.
Card Details................ stamp Rubber Necker Stamp Company, c/s SU and PTI, Copic Markers and Copic air brush system for background colors, SU's corner punch, black pearls and sheer black ribbon ------------------
A couple of weeks ago, Jamee (Pink Beach Ball) sent me a cute RAK all the way from Hawaii! Thank you so much for thinking about me Jamee and making my day shine!
I also want to thank Kyoko (Cards and Tags Mania) for awarding me with this awesome award!! I apologize for not posting both the award and RAK sooner! You ladies are the best and thank you so much for your acts of kindness!
Whew....sorry for the long post today! Take care of yourselves and thank you so much for stopping by!
