To Mother


Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use it challenge this week encourages us to use pins of some kind on our project.  I just bought these new memo pins from Tim Holtz.  My plan was to do a Mother's Day mini album but the day snuck up on me so I'm using a couple off the photos and one of the pins on this card.  I still plan on doing the album.  The paper and embellishments are picked out; just need to add a dose of 'time' and it will get done.

The top photo is my grandmother and my Mother taken probably in the 1950's.  The lower photo is Mother feeding me.  (Exact year withheld to protect the innocent :-)  but it was originally a color -barely - photo.)

Project Notes: 
  • The paper flowers were sprayed with light gold Tattered Angels spray.  It really shows up on these more so than paper. Is it because of their dimension?
  • The ribbon threads through a cut on the side and some glue dots hold in place diagonally across the card.

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Inkadinkado for greeting
Ink:  Vintage Cream by PTI; spray by Tattered Angels
DSP:  Indian Summer by Basic Grey
Pin:  Tim Holtz memo pins
