Here is my take on the challenge.




Isn't the May mood board pretty.  I thought it was the right colour and theme for Mother's Day.  An what do you know, It is Mother's Day on Sunday!!!  I am loving that I am so organised!!!  My mum doesn't visit here, so It will be all good for the weekend.....now to buy a nice gift!
I had a play with the Distress Oxide and I wasn't disappointed!  I used my craft mat and watered down the oxide to create a nice wash.  I masked the first bloom and happy with the CAS feel but I thought it was too clean, hence the splashes to finish off.

anyway head on over to Ann's beautiful blog and I look forward to seeing your inspired contributions for this challenge ♥

Happy birthday shadow stamping

Hi There,
I thought I'd  give another technique a go.  Trouble is when I like something, I tend to OD on it!!  so needless to say, you'll be seeing more of this technique in the coming posts!   I think it works really well on a solid type of stamp so I revisited my Hero Arts large solid flower.  I also gave my new Altenew dye pads a go and I was impressed with their coverage and the way they stamped, so they get a huge tick from  me.  Scrapbook Boutique have all the details and products used for this card!
