Love, you're all I ever could need...only one good thing worth trying to be, and it's love...

Hey, y'all! Happy Saturday! I'm sitting here enjoying the quiet since my boys are with their "granny" going to see a movie. I'm about to head to Stamp Asylum for my Copic Class, but I thought I'd squeeze in a little stamp time first. *grin*

I decided to use this week's Mojo Monday sketch to get me going...what a great one! And I tell you, it's a lot quicker now that I'm building my stash of pre-colored images. You gotta try it!

I stamped Veggiebella in Black Stazon on Fabriano Hot Press Watercolor paper and colored her with a waterbrush & reinkers. For the teensy tiny areas, I used a blender pen...much easier! The image was cut and embossed with my Rectangle Nestabilities, then matted with Prism Suede Brown Dark and a Kraft Scalloped Rectangle. I found this Jillibean Soup paper (Thin Zucchini from the Minestrone collection) that complimented my image quite nicely, so I mounted that onto a 5" square of Apricot Appeal sponged with Tangerine Tango. (Apparently all of my card today was based on food?? Weird!) After matting that with more Suede Brown Dark, I added a strip of the same across the card where the two papers came together, and then wrapped some New Leaf Stitched ribbon around it. I finished off the card with some Jillibean Soup Bean Seeds (felt flowers), held together with an antique brass brad. My finished card measures 5 1/4" square.

Well, folks, it's about time for me to get ready and hit the road, so I'm gonna say 'bye for now! Stay tuned...I have some fun stuff for you tomorrow that is a break from my "usual"...I think you will love it!

Have a fabulous Saturday!
