Mojo sketch #27

If you ever check out Julee Tilman's blog http://www.poeticartistry.blogspot.com/ then you know every week she has a new sketch to try out. I havn't really had a chance to play with my Embrace Life stamp set from SU, so this was the perfect opportunity. I started out with the big flower stamp and stamped it all over the kraft cardstock, using Tim Holtz walnut stain ink. I opened up my ruby red ink pad, put some ink on the inside lid and used that to watercolor the flowers. The designer paper on both sides of the main image are from the Ginger Blossom pack {I love double sided paper, SU got it right with this one} I layered whisper white paper on ruby red cardstock, and stamped the cherry blossom looking image, rotating it with every stamp so it looks random. I watercolored the cherry blossoms and once I was satisfied with the way it looked, I added a little more color using a red spica glitter pen, to make the flowers pop. I added chocolate chip satin ribbon and tied white ribbon on the side. I didn't like how the white ribbon looked so after taking the picture, I ended up cutting the white ribbon off. I made two of these cards, I thinks thats all I had in me. They will go into the card sets I am making for Mother's Day gifts.
