Mothers Day in the UK

Sweet Stampin: Mothers Day
Little Red Wagon: liquid

This started with the layout. I had seen, quite some time ago, a similar design and wanted to try my hand at it. So don’t even ask who was the designer because I could never find it again. The purple color is one drop of a purple reinker and one drop of a light turquoise and one drop glycerin. I smeared these all together on my glass mat with the make up brush and then went to spreading on the masked white cs. It is such a good color and much to my liking compared to what purples I had. Once the masking was removed I drew the straight lines with gel pen and straight edge. Added circles with same pen and eraser protector. I then stamped the images in black ink. Stamped the dragon fly on vellum that came with the edge in a gold lace pattern that I then fussy cut. Curled the wings and attached with vellum glue on the body. Added gold water color splatter and a few black dots by hand with gel pen. Added sentiment in black stamping. Mounted on white cs base with the a fun foam backing to add popup.

Hope the liquid of the glycerin counts over at Little Red Wagon. I think she was looking more for a beverage liquid so I took quite the poetic license on this one.
