CTS27 - Happy Mother's Day


This week we have another fantastically versatile sketch, this time by Chrissy Larson:



I decided to try a one layer card for this sketch, creating the elements only with stamps. The Hero Arts sentiment takes centre stage, framed by a wreath of pretty flowers. I made the leaves with the brush tip of a green Copic marker and I used a black gel pen for the flowers' centres - it gives some great shine and a little 'bump' for dimension.

I can't wait to see what you'll come up with - don't forget to link up by the deadline - next Tuesday at noon!

  1. OMG! This is so perfectly sweet! Love the colors but ABSOLUTELY love how you tucked the sentiment into the flower wreath!

    Makes me want to put on a nice breezy gauze dress, with a wreath of wild flowers perched atop my head and dance barefoot in the grass!

    Yep, the hippie days...of which you are far too young to remember!
