Multitasking Mama

Here is a gorgeous Saturated Canary stamp that I just had to colour up for one of my multitasking mummy friends recently. I just love how this stamp perfectly captures all the things a mama of a young babe has to juggle! I think I'll do a double take on this one and make it up again for my sister in law too, who will see the humour hopefully, as her babe is currently only sleeping a couple of hours at a time and she's knackered!

My doily started off white, but I gave it the pale pink Promarker treatment and it came up beautifully. I used my black metallic Promarker on the frypan to give it that cast iron look, sadly this doesn't show up so well in the photos. I can't recall where I bought the beautiful felt lace and so wish I did, as I'd like some more! The paper is a page from some lovely mixed papers I won from the incredibly generous Bev Rochester a while back. I don't know who they're by, but I just loved the soft muted colours in this one and it worked perfectly as a backdrop for my pastel image. The sentiment tickets and die are both from Whimsy. There's little left to say on this one. I used Kraft card as my card base, which I just love the look of with the pastel shades. I finished the card with a single large flat backed pink pearl which I'm pretty sure I bought from MeiFlower.

Here's a close-up of Krista's lovely Multitasking Mama which can be found HERE.
