Hello! A couple of weeks ago, Julee announced that she was starting Mojo Monday sketches again! Woohoo, I thought! I love a good sketch challenge and her sketches have always been favorites of mine. I was also in need of a sympathy card, so I set out to make one this weekend.
Not knowing exactly how I would lay out my flowers, I stamped out all of the images from the Wild Rose stamp set (from Pretty Pink Posh) onto watercolor cardstock with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. The Daily Marker 30 Day coloring challenge started up on November 1, so this was a sign for me to do some coloring on a rainy Saturday morning. I used Zig Clean Color Brush markers and a water brush to color the roses and leaves.
Next, I used the Wild Rose dies to die cut all of the flowers and leaves. For the gray panel, I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and blended some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink onto it. I also splattered some water onto it to add a water color look. I played with arranging the flowers and leaves for quite some time. Once I was reasonably happy with the arrangement, I adhered it all with foam tape. After the layers were assembled, I splattered some Black Soot Distress Oxide over everything.
My sentiment (from PPP Encouraging Greetings) was stamped onto black cardstock with Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Finally, I added some Pearl White Jewels.
Here's a look from above:
Though it is hard to see in the photograph, I went over the flowers with a clear Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer.
Here's a look at the Mojo Monday sketch #501.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
