Late Mother's day easel card

I'm sharing a late Mother's Day easel card I made for the Packhouse. Unfortunately it didn't sell but I can easily remove the sentiment and add a birthday one lol. It's the same design as the one I made for a workshop here.
The gorgeous image in the centre is from the Graphics Fairy and how I created the layers can be found in the linked post above.


I was so happy playing with the new distress oxides again when I found a way to create these beautiful delicate butterflies. I am sharing a quick post on Wednesday to show you how I made them.


The colours of the flowers in the image and the butterflies blend perfectly.


I am really going to have to check out some of my friend Jennie's tutorials on how to make beautiful handmade flowers, her's are incredible but at the moment I have lots of these bought ones I need to use up first.


I hope your week is going well. See you on Wednesday with the quick tutorial.

I love the way you manage to make those gorgeous pastel colours into such a great grungy style as I tend to be a bit scary of using them. It's beautiful and lush! Happy crafty week, Angela xXx

Beautiful Mother's Day card! You are really making some lovely artwork using those Oxides! I love the colors on this and the bird image is lovely! Your butterflies are gorgeous, and I can't wait to see how you've made them. Using the clock as a frame is genius! I had to scratch my head when you said you would change this into a birthday card since it didn't sell for Mother's Day. I forgot your Mother's Day is well before ours in the States. i'm curious when your Father's Day is?! Sending hugs!

Hard to believe this one did not sell Brenda- Gorgeously feminine and so very vintage looking! I just love it!
I love the use of that clock face as well, you really know how to showcase the dies you use!

Absolutely breathtaking Brenda! The background is wonderful with the soft colours and the lovely flourish patterns. The image is so beautiful, I just love birds and flowers, can't go wrong with that for a feminine project. Your handmade flowers turned out so amazing, wow! I miss making handmade flowers! I just adore all the detail on your butterflies, this is truly a wonderful Mother's Day project! hugs :)
