Nobody Loves Like Mom - Fab Fri #59

This week the challenge with Fab Fri 59  is a colour one:  Hello Honey, Calypso Coral, and Blushing Bride.  I thought of doing the Lotus Blossom stamp, but instead went for a background technique called the Bokeh technique.  Since Mother's Day is coming soon, the card became one for mother.

After letting the 3 colours of reinkers which had been applied on watercolour paper dry overnight, Whisper White craft ink was applied using a circle template (made using a windowsheet and circle framelits).  

The finished watercolour paper was cut to a 3 1/2 by 4 3/4" and matted with Whisper White cardstock. The sentiment, from "Mother's Love" was stamped with Black Stazon ink directly onto the background.  Then a 1/4" Hello Honey (SAB) ribbon and bow was attached to the left side.

Two flowers were stamped first with Calypso Coral and then with Blushing Bride ink, were cut out and the edges sponged with Calypso Coral.  The edges were pinched and folded up, and a Hello Honey punchie, from the Boho blossom punch, was adhered to the center.  Every 2nd scallop of the Hello Honey punchie was slit and the edges curled up before adhering to the center.  Dazzling details was applied after the flowers were attached the card.

Some more bling was added to the card using In Color Sequins randomly glued to the background using tombo glue.
