Inspired by...Mother

This week at Creative Inspirations Paint we are being inspired by the special ladies in our lives, whether that by our mother or somone else who has an extra special place in our hearts.

I had the privelege of making a card for a young lady to give to her mother.  We wanted lots of flowers and this cute stamp had flowers.

I made some faux flower soft by rubbing two pieces of styrofoam together until I had lots of shavings.  I colored it with my Creative Inspirations Paints using Sunshine, Amethyst, Blush and Green Olive.  I also used those colors for the butterflies.  I first colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and then adhered the faux flower soft.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
