May Flowers Mother's Day Cards

Prepare for showers of flowers this month. 
Mother's Day is around the corner. 
Do you remember those sweet hand drawn cards you gave Mom?

Let's make her cry again this year...with tears of nostalgia.


4 diverse card personalities. 
My focus was to use color groupings, and flowers of course.
The supplies can be eclectic and endless:
Papers, all types  
Flowers  
Embellishments  
Fibers and ribbons  
Gel Press prints  
Glitter, mica, etc...  
"Instant relatives" photos  
Inks  
Adhesives  
<Don't forget the one-of-a-kind>  

Here is a shot of my stash for this project.

I challenged myself to use a standard 4.25" x 5.5" card. Adding papers and ephemera in a collage format.

My pink choices:

My natural tones:

My bohemian:

My modern yellow:

I adjusted my choices as I went along. Like adding mica glitter to this resin flower:

Or even mica flakes to the inked open circle:

Don't forget you can ink or paint these shabby roses to fit your color scheme:


Now you can customize a Mother's Day card to fit each Mom in your life. 
The finished 4 cards:
The soft pink:

The naturalistic with photo:

The Bohemian with fibers:

The modern yellow:


Thank you for stopping by.
Please share with us what you create.

Ciao for now,

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
