Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who are mothers. This is the card I made for my mom. She loves the ocean and beachcombing along the shore is one of her favorite activities, so that inspired this card. For the background panel, I used a wave-edge paper trimmer from Creative Memories to make lots of wavy strips of paper. Then I inked the edges for some extra definition, laid them out in a pattern, then spritzed the whole piece with pearl shimmer spray. For the sentiment panel, I used some leftover wave pattern edges as masks, then layered shades of ink and more shimmer spray to create another wave pattern. The shells were stamped, colored with copics and sprayed with shimmer spray. I really love how the finished card turned out, and hopefully, my mom did, too!
