Yes I know it’s not quite mothers day yet but mine has to be posted early to reach Spain in time. Plus Mum doesn’t read my blog as far as I am aware so unlikely to see it!
Here is what I made for my Mum….
I used some patterned vellum that I bought a couple of years ago. Through this I punched the ribbon edge punch and threaded the tangerine tango ribbon.
I then took some mixed media paper and a stencil that had swirls like the vellum. I sprayed the paper with water through the stencil and tapped Brusho powders in reds, oranges and yellows onto it. This meant it kept the stencil pattern but was still a Brusho bit of magic. I love the way that the crystals mix together. I left this panel to dry.
I then worked on the butterfly from the Watercolor wings set. I do love these butterflies. I used reds, yellows and oranges to create the butterfly and then cut it out. I adhered the butterfly to the Brusho panel and layered it all up. Finally I added some stickles for a bit of bling and to balance it with the vellum.
Love how this came out! Bright and beautiful for my lovely Mum!
