Blogger Challenge - Frame for Mom

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you've been having a great week.  We've had quite a bit of rain this week, but I was happy to see my Rhododendron start to bloom.  I used the flowers color as my color inspiration for this weeks Bloggers Challenge.  This weeks theme is to Alter It.

I've had these frames in my alterable stash for quite some time, every now and again you can find them in the $2.50 spot at Target.  All stamps are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I stamped the sentiment first using a SAMJ, then stamped the floral image and colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  I added a few Pixie Pink Butterflies and Basic Grey Half Pearls for embellishments.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Mom set
Ink - Black Archival, Markers
Card Stock - Watercolor, Pixie Pink
Other - Basic Grey Half Pearls, H20 Brush, Beautiful Wings Embosslit

Have a great weekend
