Floral Mother's Day Card

| 2 min read

It's almost Mother's Day here in the UK and what better to go on a card than a big, bold beautiful flower. For this week's inspiration I have chosen to combine the fabulously grungy Flower Ink stencil and Mother Definition stamp on a pretty one layer card.

Handmade Mother's Day card


I adhered the stencil to some super smooth card and blended a base layer of yellow Distress Oxide ink, deepening until I was happy with the shade.

step 1

I then blended brown ink into the centre section.

step 2

I then added some shading by working out from the centre in orange and red tones.

step 3

step 4

Using a small stencil brush and a white pigment ink I then swept the ink out from the centre. This really helped to soften the colours.

step 5

I then took the insert to the stencil and coloured around the outer edge of it repeatedly to add more dimension and interest.

step 6

Using a stamp platform, I added my sentiment directly onto the card and added highlights with a white gel pen to make it pop.

step 7

Before mat and layering to finish, I added more detail to the middle of the flower, carefully drawing lines with a white paint pen all around the middle before adding in some shading with pencils to create dimension.

step 8

finished card staged

I wish all the Mums out there a lovely relaxing Mother's Day and for those folk that find the day difficult I send love, and hope that you can find something to make you smile a little on the 10th of March.
