I know it's after Mothers day but as I got into making my card it just fit adding the mother's day vs. a happy birthday.. I first stamped the Tech. Tuesday image on water color paper. I then used my ShinHan water colors and painted the image and background. I used gold paint to give splatters. I let it dry then used My favorite things die. I tried different backgrounds papers and nothing worked then found this gold glitter paper and it really made the gold splatters stand out so went with that.. yes that's a lot of gold but it's for that awesome mother.. I stamped the Tech. Tues. sentiment and heat embossed with Simon Says gold. I cut it out.. I stamped the Paper Trey ink Mothers day and heat embossed and using PTI tag die. I added to the card and added a Pretty Pink Posh jewel to the tag. I had a few black hearts from some of the PTI tag die so added them to the card. This card is ready for that special mother for 2021.
