Thought I'd add a bit of MOM to the Spring Challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week. After seeing the beautiful bloomin' trees in the inspiration photo, I was drawn to purple and since lilacs are one of my all time favorite flowers, I colored my image to represent those blissful smelling buds.
I started off with a Wisteria Wonder base, layered a piece of embossed Rich Razzleberry on top and then finished off my color combo with a Lucky Limeade.
My flower was stamped onto a piece of WaterColorPaper in Black StazOn Ink. I used a few different shades of purple and green WaterColorCrayons and applied those with my Auqa Pen. After it dried, I added the pearls and a bit of Smooch Pearlized Top Coat for a bit of shimmer.
My sentiment actually said "you're my favorite thing" so I just colored the words I wanted to show with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Write Marker and then added the word MOM, popping the center 'O' for a bit more depth. Isn't it 'tweet'?! :)
