Mama Don't Be Blue

It's time to make a card for your mom.  Edna wants you to do it in one color.  The new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is M is for Monochromatic Mama!  

I started by coloring my own paper with Lindy's Stamp Gang Tibetan Poppy Teal.  This paper became the lattice die cut.  I even had a piece of paper that matched the spray!  I stamped the colored cardstock with the sentiment and  embossed it with white powder before I used embossing ink to stamp the script stamp and to darken the lower portion of the card.  My final touch was the addition of dew drops from the Robin's Nest.

Then I made something about what I really wanted for Mother's Day.  This was how I felt when my husband had to spend a year away from home for work.  I was living in a foreign country with a toddler and a preschooler.  I may have been a bit exhausted by the end of the year and I remembered fantasizing about being able to spend one night away in a hotel (alone) after my husband returned home.  

Now that my children are older I don't have this feeling anymore.  Now I want to to take them with me to the hotel and travel.  

The art journal page was with Distress Spray, Ink, and Marker in Mermaid Lagoon.

Both cards are fab. I'm partial to the teal it is gorgeous with those dew drops on the lattice. the second one, I don't even care if it is a hotel I would just like some time alone.

I love how you added the dew drops to your beautiful card. Cool art journal page...great thought!

Lindsey said...

Really? Spray matched paper matched dew drops? I had no idea that was possible. Your card is beautiful, but your journal speaks truth.

The card for your Mom is gorgeous with that pretty blue color! I love all the pearl accents too! The journal page is great, and I love the little afterthought at the bottom! Fun stuff :)
