Mother Nature

Are you feeling Artsy?   Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  is to showcase an artsy stamp.

I started with the Wendy Vecchi flower which kicked off the whole idea behind my tag.


The flower had me thinking of Mother Nature and how she would be watching over her children.

I stamped the flower twice once in gray ink and second time in a lighter hue which gave the shadow effect.  I created a crown for Mother Nature made of petals from the flower.  I gave her a little beauty mark of a butterfly.

I shadowed with hints of blue, yellow, orange, and gray using watercolor pencils and waterbrush.

  16. She is one stylin' Mother Nature! What a great source of inspiration! I really am drooling over the color palette and little pops of bling here and there. The ribbon is stunning and it's always so fun to see what you've created.
