I hope all the moms out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I went up to my parents house for a visit which, I hate to admit, was a bit overdue. I made my mom a tag card and had found some unfinished wooden birds at Michaels. She has a little garden and I thought they’d look cheery.

For the card I started with the background using Distress inks. I really like a little texture to start with. I then stamped Magical flowers and used my new favorite Derwent Inktense Watersoluble Ink Pencils to color everything in. I put some clear glaze over the flowers to make them a little shiny, added some glitter for a little sparkle and then used some fluff on the bottom for grass.

The two wooden birds – I painted a base coat on each and then used a stencil to add a top layer of texture (you can probably see it better in the bigger picture). I then added more texture with some wheel stamps that I have that have dots and another that has words. I drew the black lines with a pen and stamped the word “tweet” using an alphabet that I have. I sprayed a couple coats of Krylon sealer to make sure they’d hold up – at least for a little while in the garden that is.

Anyway, I hope you all had a splendid day.
