Thanks Mom

Mom loved daisies. Mom always had a craft project going-usually more than one. She love string art, beaded flowers, knitting, she did lovely pen and inks of most of her pets,and everything as seen on TV.She dressed simply-we buried her in her favorite jeans and tee shirt. I got my sense of color , design and balance from her, as well as willingness to make a mess and see what happens.
If you can't make a mess you can't make anything at all.
And love- lots of it-unconditionally-slow to judge and quick to hug.
Thanks Mom. this one's for you.
I stamped the daisies with antique linen distress ink, and put mustard see, wild honey and tumbled glass on the craft sheet, misted with water and used them to water color the card.
Let it dry really well before you stamp over it.
Stamped the quote in versafine vintage sepia and clear thermal embossed.
That's it- another in the simplicity series.
Please post your own entry in the Created Byhand Challenge- the theme is 'Mothers/Pearls'. I have the pearls on my drawing table, I just couldn't seem to work them into the card.
Please leave a comment;I appreciate each one.
