Mums Love card for SB91

My Mum has always played an important part in my life so I decided to make her a special card using Mums Love stamp set.  The stamps in Mums Love set are gorgeous so decided to use it for this weeks Stamping and Blogging Sketch Challenge.   Here is my card for SB91.
Mums Love by Patrice
I masked and then sponged and stamped sections of the card using Sahara Sand ink, such an easy but effective technique to do.

Mums Love is a two-step stamp set so I started by stamping the outline image.  I then masked the solid image so just the flowers was showing, inked them in Crushed Curry and stamped flowers on the card.  I then masked the flowers and inked the leaves in Garden Green, I stamped the image on scrap paper before stamping on my card to create a lighter shade.  I then coloured some pearls in using a black sharpie marker for the center of the flowers and painted the flowers using Dazzling Details.
