Happy Mothers Day! Inspirational post for Whimsy Stamps

Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous Moms and I hope all Moms have an awesome day.  I'm back with another inspirational post for Whimsy stamps and this week I'm using Crissy Armstrong's Butterfly Flourish 2 and I used my Prismacolor pencils to colour it. I added some Midnight transparent glitter for the antennas. I started off using Elegant Eggplant for my base which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I used various of blue and purple papers that I had in my stash. The last blue paper I ran it thru a Darice Embossing folder called 'Butterflies in Corner'. I sponged some teal and wisteria ink to show off the embossed areas. I then cut out an oval using Spellbinders die called 'Lacey Ovals' using Elizabeth Crafts Shimmer Sheetz called 'Blue Iris'. I then got out my Tim Holtz alcohol inks using Pool and Eggplant to colour the shimmer sheetz. I used a Stampin' Up punch called 'Elegant Butterfly' to cut out some smaller butterflies using Blue and Black Iris Shimmer Sheetz and again colored them using Alcohol inks. The bigger butterfly was embossed on the shimmer sheetz using a Cuttlebug embossing folder called 12" Butterfly. Again used Alcohol inks to add some colour. I added some light blue rhinestones down the middle for each butterfly. I added some teal /green satin ribbon by May Arts.
