Beautiful You Mojo with Help From Trevor

Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  Since it's the first sketch of the month, that also means there are Verve prizes up for grabs!  We hope you'll play along!

Handmade card by Julee Tilman featuring Verve Stamps | www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com

My card started out with this piece of a water colored project Trevor had done that was sitting out on my desk.  He LOVES anything to do with art, especially painting, and it's so fun to see what he creates. I loved the colors he put together and thought it would make a great background.  Next I stamped the flower from Beautiful Things on vellum and embossed in white.  I colored with Copic markers on the backside and then cut it out with the coordinating Beautiful Flowers Die Set.

The sentiment is stamped in rich razzleberry and island indigo onto a Stitched Pennants die cut and I layered a vellum cut out from the Springtime Stitches Die Set below it.  A bit of white twine, some Shine Bright sequins and a whole lot of embossed and distressed panels finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fantastic start to your week.

How awesome that you used Trevor's painting on your card - I bet he was excited :o) Simply a gorgeous card!

Love your card and I also love the background! Tell Trevor he's a great artist! What a great idea to use his page as a background. I imagine he was really excited to see his work on a card.

Julee, that's so special to have that watercolour piece to work your magic on top of:) You have such a wonderful, and inspirational style. Love how you did those flowers on vellum.

Julie your card is gorgeous. I have a Trevor too who is 20 yrs old and in Army Reserves. When he was younger he loved to help me with projects and I have to admit that he is MUCH better at using and blending Copics than my daughter. She is now a teacher and can create amazing bulletin boards though.

OH, Julee, I adore this collaboration! I have a piece of cardstock that my daughter had fun making watercolor drops all over and it's so pretty...but I can't seem to make myself cut it up! Maybe I will now! Love how you melded all the elements in this card. Thanks always for the inspiration and the chance to win more of your amazing designs. :)

I love the way you layered this card. I need to try that idea with some of my embossing folders.
