MOJO253 and Hand Stamped Sentiments 130

Saturday, August 11, 2012

I've been trying to use some of the new In Colors recently and then I stumbled on the mother of all In Color challenges this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  At first I was a little intimidated by trying to use all five colors at once, but I took a few days to think about it before I came up with this using the latest MOJO sketch.   


I started with some Very Vanilla which I layered with some Midnight Muse and another layer of Very Vanilla which is embossed with PTI's Guide Lines impression plate.  I layered some stitched Midnight Muse DSP and some Summer Starfruit DSP from Comfort Cafe.  The layered flower is Verve and although it's hard to tell in the picture, the big layer is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and the smaller one in Primrose Petals.  A little Primrose Petals Dahlia finishes off the center of the flower.  The leaves are stamped in Gumball Green using a Verve leaf.  The sentiment is from Much Appreciated.

Once again we've got another hot day on tap.  Although the sun is not out the humidity is pretty high and everything and everyone is hot and sticky!  Later on I'm off to Plymouth for lunch with my mother and sisters.  Hopefully, it will be a little cooler at the coast!

Thanks for stopping by!
