I have so many digi images, that I save as I go about 'blogland', and most of them are freebies. However, I am rubbish at knowing where the image has come from when I finally get around to using one on a card, so apologies for not knowing where this one comes from.
I received some surprise stash from the lovely Margaret for my birthday, in which she had included some different shaped doilies. I was thrilled with all the bits she sent me, and when I saw this heart shaped one, I knew I had the perfect image and backing papers to go with it and thought that it would look fab on a Mother's Day card, this is the result.
I have coloured the image with Promarkers, and added a pink heart shaped button to the bottom right of the image - 1) because I had one; and 2) because my colouring was a little off, so it helped to hide some bleeding. To the heart that she is holding, and the 2 small ones by her knees I added glossy accents, and to the bows in her hair and bunches I added some stickles, although it doesn't really show up in the picture.
I hand cut the image to get the heart shape, using a template I cut on the Craft Robo - haven't quite mastered lining up and cutting an image out on the robo, and since I found this image a bit small and fiddly to colour in the first place, I didn't want to risk trying it. I then cut some hearts out of pink card stock on the robo to back the image, and doily. For a different look I offset all the mats and think that this worked really well. 'Mum' was cut on the robo, and I just added a few pearls from my stash to finish the card off. I'll find out tomorrow if my Mum likes it, and I really hope she does.
