Mojo Monday 91... Bloom!

Hi everyone... SUMMER is here! :) I hope the weather is nice where you are at and enjoying the sun. We have clouds and rain coming in. Good day to stamp!

Last night I had a couple hours to play with the Mojo Monday 91 Challenge using my new Floral Symphony set from Verve!! I'm not happy how the word "Bloom" turned out, not enough contrast! But the rest of the card is nice. These colors are out of my box and tried to follow the sketch as close as I could.

I used my Nesties Label One die to create a panel behind the my image. CB embossed for some texture and sponged the edges using Craft Whisper White. For the flowers I used my SU! markers and Sakura gel pen to add some sparlke.

The rest of the card is pretty easy to follow. I did outline my white butterfly using my Sakura gel pen. Click on the second photo for a closer look at the flowers! Enjoy my stamping friends... :)

Have a super Sunday... thanks for popping in for a visit!!

Smiles... Michelle

This is beautiful Michelle! I love the shabby chic look of it. Your use of the Top Note die, CB'd and sponged, is truly inspired! I can see the "bloom" just fine, so no worries there.

Your artistry is stunning. As always, you leave me inspired!

Lots of hugs and smiles,
Lisa

This card so didn't yell "Michelle" at me today! The colors just weren't BRIGHT enough! That said, it was still very beautiful! I hope you are enjoying your new verve stamps! I am hoping to buy a new set very soon! I want the set called Fairy Tales. SO CUTE!

Great card. I really like the stamp, I particularly love those curly leaves and it works so well with the sentiment. I really like the way you've done the panel behind the flowers, it's really effective. The butterfly adds that finishing touch too :o)
