Mother's Day Card by ~ Tracey Sabella

We would like to wish all our mom's a happy Mother's Day weekend!! 

It's Tracey here, and to celebrate I've created this card for my mom.
Donna's designs and products are so great to work with
for shabby mixed media projects.

Mother's Day Card

Tips and Techniques
These sweet roses are created with the mulberry paper from Donna's Mix'd Media Stax 2 cut with her Spellbinder's Bitty Blossoms Dies, then brushed with gesso. 

Underneath the flowers, I've layered Donna's Mix'd Media Stax 2 Dictionary Paper and Want2Scrap Corrugated Board along with other delicate elements. 

Inside and out I dry brushed the background with gesso, then mixed Donna's Clearsnap Petals Mix'd Media Inx Reinker into gesso and dry brushed the tinted gesso over top.

The edges are distressed with Donna's Distrezz-it-All by Zutter, then machine stitched.

I hope you've been inspired to grab your Donna Salazar products and created a card for a special mother in your life.
