Mothers Day from MFT

It's funny how you start with something for inspiration but end up with something else. That's what happened here. Every Saturday Lauren posts sketches on her blog so everyone can get creative. I've been absent for a while but I was all ready to pull it off this past week. This was her sketch from April 19 - Here.

Ok, so I took pieces of the sketch I suppose. LOL! I seriously sat down with it with all the best intentions. I wanted to use my new stamps I got from MFT. I really loved this set when I first saw it, so perfect for Mothers Day and Spring in general. When I started working with the sketch I realized that the image was a bit too big compared to what Lauren had in mind for her sketch. I really wanted to use this awesome Basic Grey paper as well. Basically my inspiration did come from Lauren and her sketch but as I started things shifted a bit. I'm hope Lauren won't mind too much. :-)

I used Copics and Primsacolor markers to color in. I use pop dots again to make the image pop out. Her lovely flower pot is decorated using the awesome Basic Grey cupcake paper as is the background patterned paper. Tamara will have some Basic Grey posted to the MDC website soon. I added stickles to the flowers as well a little bit of glitter is a must!
