Flower Mojo

Happy Tuesday! A little late, but here's my sample using this week's mojo sketch. I pulled out Floral Whimsy and decided on a color combo of Sage Shadow, Pretty in Pink and Basic Gray. No designer paper was harmed in the making of this card! LOL

All stamps are from the Floral Whimsy set. I stamped the vase in Sage Shadow, the flower sprig in Basic Gray and then colored and shaded with copic markers. The sentiment is cut and embossed with the Classic Squares Nestabilities and I outlined the flower sentiment with a Copic marker. I stamped the butterfly on the Sage circle and then stamped it again on Vellum Cardstock. I then colored the underside with pink Copic markers and used the little dot decoration to decorate the butterfly wings, then trimmed it out and popped up on the circle. The background is Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow run through the Birds & Vines Cuttlebug folder. The inner strip is Basic Grey and I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch, but covered it up so much you can barely see it. I finished off with some Kaiser Craft pearls on the flowers and butterfly body.

  4. Very pretty Julee. I really like how the doily punch being covered as much as it is almost gives an illusion to the eye that the line is curved like the top of a circle. I also really like the shading on the vase and the addition of color outlined on the black stamp.
