MOJO126 Botanical Bliss



I pulled out this Botanical Bliss set from Cornish Heritage Farms to use with the new Mojo sketch. I stamped the circular floral medallion directly on the designer paper and then lightly colored in the flower with a pink Copic marker.

I stamped the dragonfly on some of the green designer paper, cut it out, and then painted the wings with an Irridescent Medium. The wings are all shimmery, but it's hard to see that in the picture.

Can you see the sentiment that I stamped on the bottom left side? It really just blends right in with the designer paper, doesn't it? I know this isn't a typical "Holly" card, but I just felt like trying something different. :-)

By the way, have you seen the newest tutorial over on the Be Creative blog? Joanne did an awesome tutorial on watercoloring with distress inks. You don't want to miss this one - just by leaving a comment you have a chance to win that Fruit Basket stamp set. Click HERE to check it out.
