AHSC #90 Mother's Day Card

Wow, these past 2 weeks have really taken there toll on me.  I'm just completely exhausted, and was in need of some rest.  So I apologize for being extremely late in posting my creation for this week's sketch. However on top of creating for this weeks sketch, I also have created projects for 2 blog hops.

Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my creation:

I started with a piece of patterned paper from the Brushed paper packet and Canary Cardstock.  The sentiment and flowers are from the stamp set Flowers for Mom (B1473) found in the 1st edition of Seasonal Expressions.  The mat for the sentiment is Pixie cardstock.  To achieve the look of the smaller flowers peeking out behind the large ones I stamped the larger flowers on some scrap paper, trimmed them out and layered the so that they look layered.  This is one way in which to do the masking technique. The flowers in the stamp set have 2 types of stamps, the outline and the filler.  The outline is stamped in black, and for the filler I used Pixie and Hollyhock ink.  The 3 flowers off to the side are in the same colors, however, the top one is stamped in 2nd generation Hollyhock.  The flower centers are stamped in Canary.  The mat and flowers are all popped using 3D foam tape.

I hope you will now hop on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and see the creative talents of our design team.
