Sweet Thang Collage

Mother's day is this Sunday here in Oz(Australia).I'm still using up my pre made Vilene and tissue colour wash spray stained backgrounds and decided to use one to make my Mum a card.My Mum has a really funny sense of humour even though she is quite religious.I was browsing my vintage images and just loved this one.She looks just like she accidently did something wrong...like uuummm broke wind LOL.As she had a posy of flowers I came up with the caption "one should carry sweet smelling flowers the day after eating baked beans".Did some stamping with white gesso,added some Cuttlebug texture paste elements at right,painted gauze,Golden acrylic paint washes,painted German scrap and added some lovely decorative corners and the "sweet thang" was done.Hope Mum thinks it is funny or I am in deep trouble LOL. Happy Mother's Day.
