MOJO Sketch 32 - Bloomin' Beautiful


This card is for all the
"Bloomin' Beautiful" Set lovers!!!

To create this card I have used the *MOJO* Monday Sketch from Julee Tilman.

I started out with Really Rust as my base. Then I've layered it with Soft Sky and used the "Fall Flowers" DP from Stampin Up on top. For the required strip across I have used Basic Grey and added some Eyelets on the left hand side.

The image itself was stamped with Black Stazon and I have actually stamped it twice. The second flower image was cut down to create a "Paper Tole" or what I call it a 3-D look...The flower pot was colored with the Going Gray Ink and Basic Grey Marker. The flowers were colored with the Really Rust Ink using a Blender Pen an I tried to create a lighter and darker look. The leafts were colored with a Old Olive Ink also using the Blender Pen.

The cute little *Bumble Bee's* were colored in Barley Banana and Going Gray. I also raised them with Stampin Dimensionals.

After I had cut and colored the second flower image I added some Crystal Effect on it and dried it with the Heating Tool - make sure you hold it far away or it will burn the CE!!! I have to give my blogger friend Jessica aka "Can you say addicted to stamps???" credit for this idea I have seen it on one of her cards that she created with this set and I loved it - *Thank you* Jessie!!!

To finish my card off I added the super gorgeous Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon from Stampin Up.
Hope you like it and maybe I have inspired you to try your own with this wonderful Sketch from Julee Tilman. If you do make a card I would love to see it too!!! You can always leave me a link to it!!!
