Medallion Congrats

Hi friends!  Did y'all  have a great weekend?  Mark braved the zoo with the boys alone and I got a little time to myself on Saturday!  Woohoo!  But it's Monday morning again, and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch! I used a couple of Verve sets that released on Friday for my sample.


I started with the medallion piece, stamping the big medallion from Peaceful Medallions on cream cardstock and then cutting with circle dies and coloring with Copic markers.  Next I stamped the peacock from Moments Remembered on crumb cake and soft sky, then punched out the crumb cake piece and paper pieced the soft sky face and neck onto the crumb cake circle.  I colored with markers, then matted this piece with an early espresso circle.

My soft sky panel is stamped tone on tone with another medallion from the Peaceful Medallions set and then I made the fun feather panel by stamping the two feathers from Moments Remembered in Early Espresso on cream and then coloring with Copics.  I LOVE how it turned out and am a bit sad that I had to cover up so much of it, but I know I can make more!  :)  The congrats sentiment is from Moments Remembered and stamped onto a die cut from the Flag It Die Set, then I accented with twine layered over a slim ribbon.  The crumb cake background is embossed with the stars & swirls embossing folder I love so much, and I finished with a few chocolate liquid pearl accents on my medallion piece.

If you haven't checked it out, all of Verve's new releases are 10% off, plus there's a Christmas in July special with 25% off our favorite holiday and birthday stamps.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous week!
