Wildflower Meadow for Mom

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! It was very cold & windy here. My oldest son had to work, so I only got to see him for a little while and my youngest son was recently deployed to Afghanistan, so I didn't get to see him at all :-( ...BUT I did get to spend time with my Mom...so that was nice! Here is the card I made for her.

I've been so busy lately that this is the first chance I've had to play with my pre-order goodies. The Wildflower Meadow stamp is one of my favorites in the new catalog! Happy it was included on the pre-order. I inked it first with Pool Party and then wiped off the areas I wanted to color Calypso Coral. I then just colored using my markers and sponge daubers to blend the colors a bit. After stamping I ran the image thru the Big shot using the coordinating Wildflower Meadow Embossing Folder. Here's a closer look...
You cannot tell from either photo, but the image really has a pretty shimmer because it was spritzed with some homemade shimmer spray... alcohol mixed with Frost White Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer bottle. You can also add some re-inker to make it any color you wish. Unfortunately, all the Shimmer Paint is on the retiring list...so you may want to pick up an extra bottle. The strip of DSP along the left edge is from the new Quatrefancy papers.

The label is from a Nestabilities set I picked up over the weekend at the Mega Meet Scrapbook Convention...so I had to try it out! I got some really fun stuff there...like a LOT of beautiful patterned paper...because I don't already have a whole LOT of beautiful patterned paper! lol Yes, I admit it...I'm addicted to beautiful patterned papers! (I guess there are way worse things I could be addicted to, right?)
