Special weekend.

Good morning everyone, I do hope that your week 
has started well and that you had a lovely weekend. 
I have another busy week here ,so 
I am starting at the top of my to do list and working my way down....
So today I thought I would share a special card with you...
One for a Mum...
Or Mam if you are up north....

I wanted to play with some new Silk foam that I have...
It is like the Foamiran foam but you don’t need heat it. 
And I do blame Martine for this....
Thanks lovely lady..

I started with a piece of stencil card and added some colour...
And I have gone over to the purple side today ladies...( Karen ) lol. 

Next I added some splats of ink and water using my fanbrush .

I die cut the flowers out of white silk foam and added colour with the same Oxide ink as the background. 

I then scrunched and shaped them 
I used a hot glue gun to glue the flowers together . 

Then I attached them to the card, with some foliage from another die cut and some bakers twine. 

I stamped the letters from my Clarity alphabet Stamps, and the butterflies from an 
Apple blossoms stamp set...
I added some glossy Accents..

And finally added some glitter....

I added a little ink and a butterfly to the inside too.
Just to finish it off 

 Thanks for joining me...
I am off for a check up at the dentist now, 
So better get a move on 
Take care all

Much love and hugs
