a card and a tag

Hi everyone....I wanted to share a card today using Susan's Motherhood stamp. it is such a true statement combined with a great vintage image. being a mother of 4 and watching my 3 girls be mothers-Mother is definitely an action word and way of being even if it is just listening.

I took cardstock and stamped Unity stamp co stamps (layers of life set for May) for a background. I also used stencils with heavy bodied acrylic paint (parchment) to create a little depth.
i finished it off with a bow from leather cord and i used some color box chox ink around the stamped image and the cardstock.

 my next project is a tag using Susan's  A little bit Washi  stamp set. I stamped it on the cardstock tag and on some Tim Holtz tissue tape to add color. I then added one of Tim's frames on the smile stamp to highlight it. finished it off with a little chalk ink around the edges and seam binding stained with walnut stain

happy creating art from the heart,
