A Flower For All Seasons & Mojo Monday


This was a difficult sketch challenge but I like how it turned out.


The image from A Flower For All Seasons was stamped using Stazon Black Ink and colored in using Stampin' Write markers and Blender pens. To give it shading I used Sahara Sand Watercolor Wonder crayon and a Blender Pen. The center of the flower pops out with a large dot of Crystal Effects. It looks like a water drop on each center.

My scallop layers were created using a 1 3/8" Circle punch and the same image from A Flower For All Seasons.

The phrase I took from my favorite rub-ons, Chit Chat. I bet there are about 12o sayings on each sheet and you get two sheets, chocolate chip and white! That's a great deal!

I will post the recipe later today. I'm off to post project 11 in Wrapping 101! Check back!


God Bless,
