This is my reminder card for the current challenge at TIME OUT where we are Inspired by Words
'Love is the flower you've got to let grow'
(This is a lyric from the John Lennon song 'Mind Games')
You can use the whole sentiment as your inspiration or just use some words.
I chose the word "flowers" and colored in a PTI flower stamp with Copics. The sentiment is Finnish for "For Mum" - I sent this for my mother for Valentine's which in Finland is known as "Friendship Day". I sent a whole bunch of cards today, Friendship Day is great for using the "all occasions" cards one has in the stash! :) In making the card I also used a stencil for the background. This is not my finest Copic coloring, I'm rusty... But my Mum won't mind I think. :)
I was heavily inspired by the current Muse Challenge here where Anita Bowden provided this inspiration card:
I was inspired by the layout and also the idea for using a bg stencil came from this card. I love the subtle bg on Anita's card but didn't want to dry emboss the colored image just in case if I would mess it up somehow! :)
I'd also like to enter Addicted to CAS: Bloom
