Her actual birthday was on the Sunday and we enjoyed a small family lunch together in a lovely Bistro near to where she lives in Southampton. The Bistro overlooks the Solent and we had the upstairs private dining area.
What a lovely view we enjoyed..........
I wanted to include the cake I made, the card, the spring weather etc. This is my own "mood" board I made from my photos;
So this is how my Moment came together.
I wanted to use the same Noor flower image stamp that I had white embossed on her card, this time I stamped it with violet archival ink. I then gold embossed a foral border. I also used my seaside Memoirs Rubber Dance stamp, again stamped with violet archival ink, this was to remember the coastal lunch we enjoyed together
I painted up a Dusty attic chippie piece, a section from their lacey heart frame, with Decoart crackle paste.
and that was the last of my process photos. Once you start spraying and inking it's very difficult to stop and take photos.
So here is my finished Moment.
I used the same colour distress inks as those on my DD's card. The gold embossing acted as a resist. They are my "Cadbury Dairy Milk" colours from her cake I made :0)
You can see the crackle on my heart frame. I used the same glitter card too.
When I look at this Moment it takes me straight back to that special weekend. I really cherish these Moments and it's so good to have transformed into art in my Journal. It really speaks to me of the Mother's love I have for my babies, big and small ;0)
I would like to enter my Moment into the following challenges;
Craft Stamper Take it make it spring flowers
Dusty Attic April challenge their moodboard colours were just perfect for my Moment. I was also inspired by the water effect of the leaves, it looked like crackle...I added crackle to my frame.
