Funkie Junkie Focus – Mother's Day Cards

Hello there Funkie Junkie Boutique fans! Our current theme is "We Love You Mom!" and I chose to make cards for my Mom and Mother-in-law.

One is a shaker card (always lots of fun):

The other features watercolor stamping using the new Bold Botanicals Tim Holtz stamp set:

Here are a few looks at the "in process"…

Shaker Card:

1 - Using Idea-ology Collage Layer Frames and Pocket Cards made it quick and easy to construct the shaker part of the card. I just had to add a piece of clear acetate and some foam tape to the back of one of the Layer Frames and adhere it over a Pocket Card on my card base.

I filled it with various sequins and beads from my stash.

2 - I also enjoyed breaking out a new die set, the Mini Brushstroke Flowers. They added a wonderful finishing touch to the card. I cut the flowers out of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and then watercolored them afterwards.

Bold Botanicals Card:

1 - I used a paint resist technique for one of my layers. I sponged Antique Linen Distress Paint through the Flourish stencil onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock.

When the paint was dry, I sprayed it with various Spray Stains and a little water to blend it. The paint resists the spray and the design pops right through.

2 - card base layers:

Patterned paper is from Backdrops Volume #5,
so many lovely papers in it!

3 - The Bold Botanicals stamps are perfect for the watercolor stamping technique. I tapped the Mini Distress Ink Pads over the various areas of the stamp, spritzed it with water and then stamped it onto Distress Watercolor Cardstock. It has such a great effect!
