I have been thinking hard about the latest MOJO sketch ever since I saw it on Monday.
It is scary and intriguing all at the same time. I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but I knew that I wanted to try and make something. Then I saw the ColourQ color challenge and I thought I had a match made in heaven!
What fabulous colors! To me, these colors are tropical with a touch of black thrown in for a dramatic accent. Ultimately, I had fun trying to put these two challenges together. But I have to admit that I started this card yesterday and had to quit when I encountered a creative block. When this happens I like to step away from my stamp room and take a break. Today, I realized that a butterfly would solve all my problems!
The sketch graphic suggested a flower at the top of the circle and this is where I had my original hang-up. I couldn't find a flower that I liked enough to add to my sentiment circle panel. So I decided to take a break, sleep on it, and see what I came up with in the morning. This is how I found myself thinking of butterflies. I cut out the small butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, stamped it with the Fine Flourish stamp, added some Basic Pearl Jewels and put it on my card in place of the flower. I also added some tiny Basic Pearl Jewels to portions of the flourish, but I think it's a little hard to see in the picture.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
