an "actual" card for an "actual" person!


Don't you find it hard to just make normal cards sometimes? I have so much fun making things for swaps and challenges that sometimes when it comes to making an actual birthday card, I'm stumped!! ridiculous really but I know it's a common problem. I needed a birthday card for my mum, she's a very spiritual person and really into complementary medicine, astrology, palmistry and that sort of stuff. so I thought she might appreciate the image on this Inka stamp. She also loves purple so I made it a bit of an homage to purple!! I have also used an Inka skeleton leaf stamp for the background with versamark, for a subtle background and then a real purple skeleton leaf too. I have edged the main stamped image with veracolor ink and embossed the edges with sparkly powder. I hope the picture catches the sparkle.
