Mother's Day Cards

Hi everyone! I am slowly trying to work my way back up to one card a week. I got this beautiful image over on DeviantARt from a wonderful artist who goes by JadeDragonne she has gorgeous images if you have a minute, drop by and show her some love.  I am still so rusty after being out of the craft game for so long.  This is a Mother's Day card for my stepmom.  I still have one to finish for my mom and one for my grandson's mom.  LoL I's Wednesday!

I colored my fairy with Prismacolor colored pencils, OMS and copic markers.  I used some distress inks around the edges.  I used digi paper from Bearly Mine Designs for my tag. That is sooo on my practice list...more work on making those distress stains more uniform and even.  Practice Practice.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

  1. Bearly Mine - Fairies
  2. Clear it out-Mother's Day- Use old supplies (I have had these shades of gray paper for ever)
