mother - my #1 fan

Take a 12x12 Heidi Swapp sunshine stencil that's been sitting out on my workspace for weeks. Add a celebratory challenge over at Anni's blog where she wants us to use stencils. Throw in a drop-dead gorgeous card of Anni's that I ran across while perusing her blog and my desire to finally use one of my STAMPlorations MOM Subway Art stamps as it was originally intended... as subway art.

This is the wild and crazy-ness that results...

Stencilled the sun rays onto PP with acrylic paint. Heat embossed the subway art and some vines onto a die cut label. Added some die cut leaves and two roses too.

Ahhh, the roses. Made them awhile back but I stamped them with ink and white acrylic paint onto CS that I had distress inked.  And splattered. If I did anything else to them, I don't remember!

Should your eyes be having seizures, I apologize.

Whether you are a mother or daughter or both... have a beautiful Mother's Day.  I'd rather be there to give her a hug, but my Mom's getting a GC to Red Lobster this year and she's gonna love me for that!  Shrimp, run for your lives...

Supplies for mother:
Paper:  CS Bringmann, stripe PP Echo Park, damask PP Pink Petticoat
Stamps: STAMPlorations, vine Autumn Leaves, roses Viva Decor
Ink : Versamark, Distress Inks
Tools: stencil Heidi Swapp, label die Spellbinders, leaves die Kesi Art
Other: acrylic paint, white embossing powder

The roses are stunning...they really pop against all that black, white, and gray (strips)!
