Beautiful Friend

Today's post is a couple of challenges rolled into one. The first is the layout, this is done according to Julee's Mojo monday sketch challenge. The second is the color challenge today on SCS. We were to use More Mustard, Old Olive and Bashful Blue. What a combo. It felt quite flowery to me. A couple of things of interest. The sewing is done with thread that is multicolored, it is hard to see in the photo but is a stunning accent IRL. I love this ribbon that a friend and I found at Essential Packaging. There is even texture on this vine's leaves. Instead of just stamping the image with solid color, I decided to watercolor my flowers with reinkers and an aquapen. I did outline the flowers with my C-1 copic. Lots of glitter accent too.

Remember Thursday is the beginning to the new MFT reveals! You are gonna love em'! I can't wait to show you what I have been up to.
5 sets ready for October 1st!


Happy Stamping!
