hydrangea

I made a mother's day easel card for my mother who lives in Taiwan using Hero Arts' gorgeous Hydrangea stamp.

I stamped the card base with the leaf stamp from Speckled Ornaments set with tea dye. I also stamped the beautiful Lace Background on the spring moss cardstock before I inked them with tea dye and vintage photo. It's very subtle, but i love how it turned out.

The butterfly is from Hero Arts' digital kit - Flutterbies. The script is from this set. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart. This also fits this month's challenge theme "Home and Mother's Day" over at the Hero Arts blog.

That's all for today. Hope you have a beautiful Tuesday! =)
