Wonderful Mother

Hello!
I am back with my second sneak peek at the new Clearly Besotted stamp and die sets. The set I chose to showcase today is called Just Darling. And it is beautiful. Lovely images, and sweet sentiments to match.
I decided to create some pink irises. Not sure how realistic they are, but as my mother's favourite colour is pink, it seemed fitting. :) I watercolured them with my Gansai Tambi watercolours, mixing together a red shade with some pearly white. The base is some Fog card stock from Simon Says Stamp, and I added a strip of Pebbles paper and some gorgeous Moonshine sequins.

Such a pretty card! I also like the silver thread. I cannot tell from the photo, but is your bobbin thread silver or white?

Lucy Abrams said...

Thanks Cynthia. I use white thread in the bobbin. It's much easier, as I don't keep having to change it to match. This card actually has white thread not silver, although I do often use silver thread. I think the light has made it look silver.

Holy moley, this is so beautiful. Love the color you've created against that grey. And how you stamped the leaves and stems and fussy cut those irises.
