Mom's birthday...

Already on it's way for Mom's birthday:


  • Strathmore watercolor paper stamped with Tim's Patchwork stamps in Distress Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Wendi Vecchi/Ranger Potting Soil embossing powder
  • Color Bursts in Sepia, Terra Verte, and Pthalo Green
  • Background gray panel is Tim Holtz's/Core'dinations paper inked with a bit of DI in Gathered Twigs
  • Watered-down white Liquitex gesso splattered across both panels (which I think unifies them more)
  • Vintage sheet music in the very back
  • Fussy-cut daylily from an old guide glued on with Mod Podge
  • Birthday greeting typed with my typewriter onto a library catalog card
I'd like to share this at the following challenges:


  1. Very Pretty, love the colours and the flicks of white gesso, beautiful lily too.

  2. what a lovely design on this card Mimi! Love the patchwork stampings so pretty embossed and sponged - great colors - and the overlay of the beautiful lilies makes a great accent! thank you for joining us in the A Vintage Journey Challenge! Julia xx

  3. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at Stamps and Stencils this time.
    It's a great take on our theme!

  4. Mimi, this is a stunning design! Your embossed patchwork images make this super special, and the splatter of gesso is the icing on the cake! Your Mom is going to treasure this! Thank you for playing along at A Vintage Journey! Hugs and Happy Valentine's Day to YOU!
