Stampin' Sisterhood Mother's Day Blog Hop



Welcome to the Stampin' Sisterhood Mother's Day Blog hop!  Yes, Mother's Day will be here before we know it, so we wanted to share some of our favorite Rubbernecker images we love to use for our Mother's Day cards.  My mother loves butterflies, so I used the Butterflies stamp set.



I used Vintage Violet ink to stamp the sentiment and the butterfly images.  I colored the yellow part of the butterfly with Stampin' Up markers and water colored the violet with Vintage Violet reinker.  I added silver glitter glue to part of the butterfly and then Glossy Accent to the rest of it.  Here's a closer view of the butterfly:
