Peaceful Mojo Birthday...


Just popping in quickly to share a card I made this afternoon for a couple of challenges: the Mojo Monday sketch and the beautiful colour combo from the Paper Players...

Those colours were really begging for something floral so I pulled out Peaceful Petals and had some colouring and fussy cutting fun...

I stamped the larger flower on watercolour card twice with versamark in and embossed with clear EP. I coloured with Calypso Coral ink and an aqua painter, then cut with my paper snips and layered. The smaller flower was stamped on Calypso Coral card and embossed with white, then cut out. The leaves were created the same way as the large flower, but with Always Artichoke ink. The dsp in the background is from Afternoon Picnic and the sentiment (stamped on Naturals Ivory) is from Simply Sketched. I added a some Very Vanilla seam binding ribbon and a very vintage button and linen thread to the big flower to finish.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Peaceful Petals, Simply Sketched
Ink: Versamark, Always Artichoke, Calypso Coral
Paper: Afternoon Picnic dsp, watercolour, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Always Artichoke, Naturals Ivory
Accessories: Very Vanilla seam binding, very vintage button, linen thread
Tools: Banners framelits

Thanks for stopping by!
