Mothers

The challenge this week on Make a Moo or Two is
Mothers.


I typed up words which described the wonderful attributes of my Mother
& printed this onto paper from the Shabby Princess Shabby Mommy range.

I then dry brushed acrylic paint over the top to soften the background.

I used an emery board to distress the edges to remove some of the print & paint.

I tore a couple of strips of the paper
& aged them with Distress Ink (antique linen)
& added them to each moo.

I used a small Sugarloaf Morsel stamp
from their Vintage Collection
to stamp over the background, using Distress Ink (walnut stain).

The moos were edged with Distress Ink (walnut stain).

I cut out four flowers, using a Woodware paper punch.
They were edged with Distress Ink (walnut stain)
& using the same ink,
I stamped another Morsel image in the middle of each flower.

I shaped them with a dry embossing tool & put gold Stickles in the centres.

The images are from photographs of my Great-Grandmothers.

They were edged in Distress Ink (walnut stain) &
then the image outline faded using a eraser.

I love working with old family photographs
& really enjoyed making these.

Great theme.
