Creative With Stamps; May Challenge

I can't believe it's May already! Wow, time is flying by and Mother's Day is right around the corner. Which brings me to the May challenge at Creative With Stamps:


Products of your Choice

I received these gorgeous images from our sponsor. These images are not something I would normally use and that's why I WANTED to use them.

I arranged the image and sentiment on my computer before printing them onto white cardstock. Once I did that, I pulled out my pastel chalks and an eyeshadow applicator to color the image. I used a gold marker and white pen to embellish the image as well as flat back pearls. Once the image was complete, I printed an extra image on white copy paper to use as a mask. After fussy cutting her out, I placed the mask over the colored image and sentiment using repositionable adhesive.

I stamped two different background stamps with two different colored inks over the entire piece. Once I did that, I splattered gold, black and sparkle silk all over.

Matted with white cardstock and then a pink card base.

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out! Now it's your turn, click on over to the Creative With Stamps website to join the challenge!
