One of a Kind Mom

I love the Scene in a Garden stamp set, but I love to watercolor. One of my favorite images in this set are the boots and when I saw this fabulous card in Brandi’s gallery I filed away the idea for future use.  I paired it up with the sketch challenge from Late Night Stampers and the card just fell into place. 

I started wih a Kiwi Kiss base.  The next layer is Chocolate Chip and two sides of the Bella Rose designer series paper.  I used my sewing machine on the layer and then tied on my Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon.  I added a Latte button and the linen thread is tied around the knot.  A mini glue dot holds it more securely in place. 

I made the main image layer by stamping the boots repeatedly in Basic Gray ink using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to keep it all lined up.  Like Brandi I spotlighted a set of boots.  I colored them in with my AquaPainter with Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point ink.  I layered it on a 1 3/8″ chocolate chip circle and then popped it up on dimensionals.  I added some paper piercing and then added it to the card base with more dimensionals.  I added the sentiment tag from One of a Kind on a Key Tag punch.  The outside is sponged with Kiwi Kiss ink and then tied on with natural hemp twine.   Dimensionals secure it in place.  Finally I added the Boho Flowers in Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango and Pink Pirouette.  I then used silver brads in the centers and attached them with mini glue dots.  I think it can make a perfect Mother’s Day card. 

It’s so nice to be back in my room stamping after taking a few days off over spring break.  Sometimes a break is good. It’s much easier to get back to then my treadmill.  That’s a whole other story, but I was dragging yesterday after having taken more than a week off from that.  Now that I’m back on track with stamping I might as well get back to my exercise routine too.  Now that I’ve told you I can’t slack on either of them. 

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
