Mama volim te (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's DoodlesMy project for today is a card I made for my Mom for Mother's Day. She loves violet color and butterflies, so do I. :o) Inspired with mixed media project I made two months ago, I made this card for her.

I used gorgeous Jane's Doodles stamp set, Butterflies. I love this stamp set so much and I use it a lot! :o)

I used Note Sheet patterned paper as a background/panel, colored it with different inks and when I was satisfied with the color, I stamped butterflies on the panel colored them with different mediums and added white highlights with white pen.

Then I masked butterflies, stamped more butterflies with white chalk ink and splattered panel with white acrylic paint. White splatters were pale, so I used white pen to accent them and I drew some extra dots with it. :o)

I used découpage glue and varnish due crafting process to fix colors.

I wrote a sentiment on computer (MS Word, text box tool). It's on Croatian and says: Mom I Love You. 

After printing, I cut out sentiment in to three pieces, drew frames with white pen and glued them on the panel. I glued the panel on a white cardstock base, rounded corners and my card was finished.
