This card is for Faith aka Markie’s Mom. She has been chosen for Queen For the Day! She certainly deserves today’s honor. She always has her game on and makes the sweetest comments on everyones cards. And her cards are absolutely beautiful and it usually takes her less than an hour. I love that she almost always puts how long it takes to finish her card in her description. I also get a kick out of reading her descriptions and titles to see what Speedy the Cat loves…or what Speedy has been into lately! And of course…her signature white gel dots. I love that she does this on most of her cards. I really had planned on putting white gel dots on this card in her honor, but my white gel pen was NOT being cooperative. I was inspired by the pansies on this card in Faith’s gallery. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=79662
I kept the purple pansy theme and kept the square design of her original.
My mother loves pansies so this will be a Mother’s Day card for her. I had also been eager to try the Butterfly Pansy punch art technique with re-inkers: http://dostamping.typepad.com/dostam...punch-art.html and this gave me the perfect opportunity. After a few tries, I finally got something that looked decent. I definitely need more practice on those…or maybe I should just buy a pansy stamp LOL!
Thanks for looking!
