Mother's Day Plaque

Hi again. I'm posting this Mother's day plaque I made. I didn't just want to have flowers to give to moms but also a keepsake with endearing words that she could cherish. So this is what I came up with.
It's a 7x9 white canvas that I inked/aged with Tim Holtz distress inks and stamped the flourishes. I made the cabbage roses using my Donna Salazar rose dies, inked them and added added pearl centers. I also used my McGill star flower punches for the star flower. I printed out the saying and adhered it to patterned paper, inked it and adhered it to the canvas. It also has a cord that I attached to the back so you can hang it. I think its the perfect size, not too big, not too small. If you didn't want to hang it, you could buy an easel for it to sit on and place it a top of a counter, end table, desk, mantle or where ever. Well I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did. Thanks for visiting. Til next time...
