Petals and Wings January Sketch

Here is my card based on this month's Verve sketch - January 2016.  The flowers were stamped in Tim Holtz colours (Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey).  The leaves are vellum, cut with a die cut.  The butterflies are embossed on vellum with white embossing powder and cut out. 

Stamps: Verve (Petals and Wings)

Mojo Autumn Birthday

 This card is based on this week's Mojo Monday (#429) sketch. 

To make the background I first sprayed some Tim Holtz inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge) onto a craft sheet and then plopped my paper into the inks.  After it was dry I stamped my stamp (Forrest Floor 2) with Wild Honey.  The leaves were cut out using a Tim Holtz die and the tiny pinecones are also from Tim Holtz -- his tiny tattered rose. A piece of burlap, some ribbon and a gold bow completed the card.

Stamps:  Designs by Ryn (Forrest Floor 2), Stampin Up! (Voila)
