I am so excited to be able to participate in the 2nd waltz with Claire and all of the talented crafters who love Waltzingmouse Stamps! If you've happened over here, waltz on over to Claire's blog to get started! You can also head over to the 'Mouse house to take a peek at what everyone else has done!
The April waltz is in honor of our mothers and Mother's Day! Daffodils and Narcissus always remind me of my mom since she has them growing all over her yard. I just love walking through her garden! So, it was easy to choose the stamp I was going to use on a Mother's Day card inspired by her.
I used the Spring Baskets set using the masking technique Anya showed us a couple of months ago. It is the first time I've masked and I think I'll be all over it from now on! Not hard at all and it gives a very nice impression of a bit of depth. I colored the flowers using Copics (really the first time I've used those, too) and filled the centers with Liquid Pearls. I hand cut the grass border and added a yellow button sun and some floaty clouds. I also sponged the "sky" with blue ink. Cute!
