PPA248 Sketch Challenge - Mother's Day

Every so often I go over to Pals Paper Arts Challenge Blog so see if there is some fun I want to participate in. This challenge, PPA248, is a sketch challenge. I decided to use it and make a Mothers Day card.

I think if I did this over again I would change the way I coloured the "Irresistibly Yours" DSP by perhaps adding very small amounts of additional colours. The yellow idea isn't quite right.

Since Blendabilities are not available, I experimented with using my Stampin' Write Markers to colour my stamped image. You can't blend the colours, but it works creating a style of colouring that reminiscent of impressionism. The trick is to leave just a bit of white here and there. I love how the colouring turned out.

Because I currently do not have a Mother's Day sentiment stamp, I took the Project Life Journaling Pen and wrote it out on a vellum banner.

You might want to hop on over to the PPA248 challenge to check out all the other entries! There some wonderful ideas there!

I plan on making more Mother's Day cards for you as some inspiration, in part because I'm not 100% happy with this card.

I actually like the yellow in the card. I wouldn't change a thing.
