Created this Tag for Tim Holtz May 2015 challenge with a lot of love & tribute to my Mother. My Mother died in 1976.
Used Kraft cardstock with TH Tag die. Applied adhesive to burlap & cut a Tag to place on Kraft cut Tag.
Used TH Cargo stencil since I did not have TH Typo stencil. Used Patch-N-Paint since I did not have TH texture paste. After Patch-N-Paste dried I used TH Distress Ink peacock feathers to paint the Patch & Paste stencil area.
Colored silk flowers with TH Distress Ink. Colored blue flower w/ TH Distress Ink peacock feathers for matching blue. Colored yellow flower w/ TH Distress Ink squeezed lemonade for matching yellow color. Colored white flower w/ TH Distress Ink spun sugar for matching pink color. Cut felt with a Spellbinder die for leaves.
Used a 1957 black & white photo of my Mother holding me as a baby that I scanned & printed. I know it is me because I cropped out my older sister standing to the right of my Mother. Used TH Distress markers on photo: pink on the highchair & yellow on the lamp to the left which is not noticeable in the photo w/ sentiment banner covering it. Distressed the photo with TH paper distresser. Added a TH crown charm to photo.
Stamped sentiment for top, inked the edges fo the sentiment tag and attached it with a stickpin embellished with beads & a heart. Stamped sentiment and cut up the words for bottom right side of tag. Inked the edges of the cut up words.
Wish everyone that is a Mother a Happy Mother's Day!
My daughter, who I consider the true artist in the family, sketched & colored this StarWars artwork of Hans Solo & Chewbaca for me.
Hubby & daughter took me out yesterday for celebrating Mother's Day early. They are making Mother's Day dinner for me today. My daughter likes to collect recipes from the Internet. Hubby & her chose 1 from her 2 favs and shopped for the ingredients we did not have. They are making Spicy (not spicy by not using fire-roasted can of tomatoes and instead using the can of tomatoes we have that are not spicy) Caprese Pasta w/ added cut up chicken tenderloins in it.
