Hi friends! Another weekend flew by and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch! This one is another one designed by Carole Burrage (who happens to be taking a little summer break). I love a tilted panel, so this sketch was right up my alley!
A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a young girl and a butterfly flew by. The girl lit up and said, "Oh that's my favorite... the yellow monarch". I remember thinking to myself that it was a pretty boring butterfly to be a favorite with all the exotic colors and markings out there, but she then started talking about yellow monarchs and the lights danced in her eyes and now I can't seem to get yellow butterflies out of my head! It was a great reminder of how passion and enthusiasm for something is so contagious. So here I am today with a yellow butterfly card!
Blue Skies set. I stamped the notebook paper image and then masked it to do a little wash with sprays and watered down paint in the background. The butterflies were stamped, then stamped again, colored with Copic markers, then hand cut and popped up on dimensionals. The papers were all scraps from recent cards I've made and I did a little border punch and some scrunched up ribbon for embellishment. A sparkly coat of dazzling diamonds and crystal effects gives the butterflies some shine and I finished off with some black pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll find some crafty time this week to play along with us at Mojo Monday!
