The Stamp Man challenge- floral for Mother's Day

The theme for the next fortnight at The Stamp Man is to make something for Mother's Day with a floral theme.

My lovely Mom makes cards too, and she's sort of expecting a card from me, so I thought I'd make her something else as well.

The paperweight is a little one that snaps together with magnets, very clever! I stamped the rose from the Aspects of Design 01- Floral stamp plate. It's such a detailed stamp, it looks like an etching. Mom's living room is blue, so I made a quick background with blue Distress Inks and then stamped the rose it in Memento Paris Dusk and water coloured it with the Distress Inks. I added a spot or two of sparkle (of course.......) with some clear Stickles, although it's hard to see from this photograph.

So, now it's over to you, show us your Mother's Day projects, and don't forget the flowers! There are some gorgeous DT projects over at The Stamp Man challenge blog if you need a spot of inspiration.
