CTMH-- April Stamp of the Month Blog Hop-- Blessed

Welcome to the Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop for April featuring Blessed!






All artwork on the hop will feature April's Blessed, a set of 12 stamps! If you have come here from Tammy's Blog you are on the right path.




This month we have  about 55 CTMH Consultants sharing their SOTM creations, and other great CTMH artwork. Hopping along is fun and simple to do - just click the link at the end of each blogger's post to move to the next one!  Be sure to leave some love (comments) along the way :)


Today I would like to share a piece of wall art that I created using this stamp set.  I found the most adorable button egg art at Auntie Loo Crafts that I used as my inspiration for this piece.  



I took the largest swirly flower image, the smaller flower image and the little butterfly and created a random stamped tone-on-tone background.  I used Sweet Leaf ink, stamped on textured Sweet Leaf cardstock.  
I then free hand drew and egg shape on the paper and started glueing buttons down onto the page.  I used our awesome new Pink Button collection and had to add some buttons from the retired Autum Garden Button set as well.  There are A LOT of buttons on this piece! 


Detail:

I ultimately framed this piece in white.
And it is a part of my "Easter themed" wall!  I have been trying to create a couple of pieces of art for each holiday to hang on one wall in my family room.  One of the Easter pieces I already featured:  Pottery Barn Kids {Inspired} Easter Wall Art.  The subway art I found at Landee See, Landee Do

Here is the wall:


Supplies Used:
Sweet Leaf Textured Carstock
Sweet Leaf Ink
D1455 Blessed
Z1370 Pink Button Assortment
Autum Garden Button Assortment



Be sure to stop by again tomorrow as I participate in the April Showers blog hop :)


Now hop hop hop on over to Wanda's Blog  to see what she has created for you!
