I am my mother's garden...

Happy Saturday! 

I'm back on the Bellarific Blog today with a Scenic Saturday card and this is a special one that I made to give to my Mama for Mother's Day tomorrow. She loves puttering in her garden, growing flowers, fruits and veggies so I knew that Curvy Girl Gardener would be perfect. To fill out the scene I grabbed the Garden Backdrop and it was a match made in heaven. The Backdrop stamps are great for creating an instant scene without all the pressure of coming up with something from scratch. And while they work great as-is, you can also embellish them and make them a bit more customized for your card just by how you choose to color them. For instance, I wanted this scene to be chalk full of bright, colorful flowers so instead of coloring in the entire fence in a light wood grain I only colored in the tops of each plank then in the white space I free handed in rows of colorful flowers and dark green leaves and because I had stamped in a brown ink the darker Copic colors hide the original fence lines. Talk about easy peasy!

Alrighty, well much love to all the amazing mamas out there. I hope you are completely pampered and showered in love from your families tomorrow!
