You're the best

Good Morning Y'all,

It's the weekend and I have tons of work to get through... I made huge numbers of mother's day cards this time which were shipped without em clicking any pictures... yes yes you read it correctly.. I did not click pictures because they were personalized with the mother's pictures...They were good fun to make..The card I am showing today is also for mother's day from my cousin to my aunt.

A quick card made using the reverse masking technique... Mind you I am still new to this whole stamping technique thing and would love a feedback.. I want to improve my stamping..
I had recently purchased a peacock feather stamp from the color conceptions store (now the craft shop) and had been itching to use it... It is so gorgeous and the detailing after stamping is superb...

Another thing which I love is my new bahama blue ink.. I have been wanting to buy this ink ever since I had seen one of tejal's ATC on her blog where she has used it and there after on quite a few cards...So I combined the two to make my card...

This card came together really well although suggestions of course have to come from my whatsapp girls ( we are sadly no more the BB girls)...

Supplies used:-
Cardstock=> Locally purchased and Fabriano Elle Erre ( the scraps used in this card have been hoarded for the last 2 years)
Stamp=> HOTP feather which I purchased from the craft shop and HA everyday sayings was a gift from tee.
Inks=> Bahama blue from thecraft shop, danube blue from Varnas and tumbled glass distress ink from Craft Adda.
Bling from stash
black gel pen or faux stitching.
