Mother's Day

Hi everyone! :o)

It's Mother's Day today in Croatia and I want to share with you a card I made for my mom for the occasion.

♥ My mom's name is Ruža (translated to English: Rose), her favorite color is violet and she loves flowers, especially roses. She also likes blue color. Combined everything together, I made this card for her. 

To make this card I was inspired with two gorgeous cards. Thanks for the inspiration Ladies! :o)

I blended Distress Inks directly on a white top folded card base, splattered the card with water and Distress Inks mixed with water.

When I was satisfied with colors and splatters, I glued a white die-cut rose over blended colors. I got this one and many many more from friend Valentina of Barvito malo mesto. Thank you Valentina!! :o)

As a finishing touch, I coated rose die-cut with Clear Wink of Stella. Unfortunately, the weather this week was awful and I couldn't catch the shimmer on photos.

Card dimensions: 98 mm x 133 mm (3 7/8" x 5 1/4")
List of supplies:
  • white cardstock paper
  • Rose die-cut (got this and many more from friend Valentina)
  • Tim's Holtz Distress Inks:
    • Mermaid Lagoon
