Spellbinders Splatter Proof Stripy Knitting :D

Another Mother's Day card, this one was actually the one from me to my Mum :D And for this card, I teamed up the Seth Apter Splatter Proof die with the Stylish Script and Arty Background Clear Stamps from Creative Expressions and also some of the free Handmade with Love stamps from Creative Stamping issue 40 :D

I started by ink blending some Cracked Pistachio Ink, I then used the waste from the Splatter Proof Die to add some pink splatters using some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and a mini ink blending tool :D I then used a couple of Ombre Ink pads to build up layers of stamping using a mixture of Creative Expressions clear stamp sets :D For my focal sentiment, I combined the 'Happy' word from the Creative Expressions Stylish Script stamp set, along with the 'Mother's Day' from the Lawn Fawn Plan on it Holidays stamp set :D I used the knitting and ball of wool stamps from the Handmade with Love stamp set (I just had to use these, as my Mum is an avid knitter, she's always knitting :D) And once I'd stamped, coloured and cut these out, I felt like there needed to be something behind them to make them stand out more, so instead of just using the Splatter Proof die, cut from white, like I had originally planned, I added a piece of vellum behind the middle of the Splatter Proof die cut to give the elements something to sit on :D The finishing touches were a sprinkling of clear sequins and some sparkle pen :D Hope you liked the card! Mum loved it :D
