Mom, You are Special

I happened to see a sketch this morning by the lovely Michelle over Atlantic Hearts.  It inspired me to pull out  my Flowers for Mom stamp set.


I cut the card base and sentiment tag from Artfully Sent.  The tag is meant to be an insert to a card, but what a delicate base!  I've used a piece of Glacier Paper Fundamentals for matting.  The sentiment on the tag is all one stamp, so I simply used clear tape to mask off the separate parts to achieve two colors.  I stamped the flowers with black archival ink and colored them with pastel green and tender pink alcohol markers.  I colored the inside of the petals with the alcohol blending pen to give them a shadow.  Finally I finished it off with some glacier twine (you'll see that on April 1st!).

(All of these products can be found on my website.)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
