Roosting


It has been quite a while since I've created a card using JULEE's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Each Monday on Julee's blog called, POETIC ARTISTRY, Julee posts a challenging design sketch and this week's was very creative and VERY challenging.



One of my favorite Stampin' Up! retired sets is called "Roosting" and this is the set I chose to use for this week's Mojo Monday 40 layout. The image is colored with Prismacolor pencils.







I cut the circles (both round and scalloped) with Nestabilities dies. The flowered designer paper is from Daisy D's. The "Merci" stamp is from Justjohanna. Then I "blinged" it all up in a farmyard kind of way with feathers and rick-rack.

Thanks Julee for another challenging sketch and the opportunity to stretch the imagination for creative layouts.





Thanks for stopping by!

    About the lavender - (I posted a comment on an earlier post because I needed yr address) this plant does not need much water but it does need lots of sun!

  6. Another BEAUTY Ms Jennifer! You ought to consider circuit training, teaching "colouring-challenged" folks (like me) how to do what YOU do!
