Mothers Day...

Is the theme for this weeks Challenge from Cynthia over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog. For once I've been very organised and and had made my mothers day card, my son wasn't as organised though and as I didn't get a card or pressie I decided to make this as a Mothers Day pressie for myself lol

I've used a Decor Plate from Carolines shop (part of my prize from last weeks challenge - thank you to Cynthia and Caroline)  and WOW they are fab to work with. I used tinkabella inks, acrylic paint and lots of glimmer mists for the background and it didn't bend at all. It also took the colour beautifully, the base colour is overstamped with some lacy circles from Joanna Sheen. The main images is a stamp from Elusive Images coloured with watercolour pencils and sakura souffle pens. Layered onto a smaller decorplate (coloured with chalk and embellished with some pearls). I then used a circle of gingham paper trimmed with some lace and added some yellow gingham ribbon to finish off.
I'm also entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ann's challenge which is lilac, pink and lemon
Tanda Teaser which is Simply Spring
Rosie D's challenge  which is Think Spring
Ooh La La which is 'Anything Goes'
and Pile it on which is pastels and lots of other challenges.
Thanks for looking,
Claire xx
