I used inexpensive acrylic paints and layered in green, beige, blue and yellow. Then I stamped using a Hero Arts script stamps and a Donna Downey stamp. The chipboard oval is painted blue, the edges are sanded and distressed. Then I applied Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The stamp says "today is all we need to nurture." from Donny Downey. The flower is Prima and the stem is just ribbon that I stapled using the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch and are adhered using foam tape. The hardware is all from Tim Holtz. I have glued the canvas to a thick chipboard and I think I will frame this. I have plans to do another one or two. I just couldn't wait to share this!!
Here are a few close up shots.
