Sentiment as the main image
It is May and Mother’s Day in the US is coming up so I chose to make a mother’s day card for the new challenge over at Creative card Crew. We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp so this is your chance to win a gift card at a very well stocked online store :-)
The challenge this time is to use a sentiment as the main image. I found a saying about mothers after a quick online search. The sentiment was written using my new fountain pen (Pilot Namiki Falcon) with a flexible tip. I was able to make the words look similar to Copperplate calligraphy script, but it is not quite there. It is best to use proper nib and ink. The background text says Love and Mother (in English and Norwegian) and the words were written in clothesline lettering. This is a fun and quick way to write decoratively. It looks as if the letters have been hung on a clothesline.
I hope you like our new challenge and join us!
