This is a busier than normal week for my daughters and I. They are going to VBS this week and the 2 youngest have it in the morning and my oldest has it at night so I have been doing quite a bit of driving. This has not left me with much crafting or blogging time. I am just now getting to show you the mojo Monday sketch for the week. As always, Julee gave us a great starting canvas. I did struggle with it a bit at first but once I figured out what I was going to use it fell into place. My sample and the sketch are below.
I stamped the butterfly from Sweet N Sassy stamps Everyday Miracles set 3 times onto Neenah white and colored with copics. I cut 2 of them out and layered them on top of one another curling up the ends to give it extra dimension. I added black pearls to the body and stickles on the wings for sparkle. The card measures 5.5 inches square and truthfully was about 1/2 inch too big in my opinion. When I was putting the card together I was not happy with the open areas so I just *had* to add something. Well, I pretty much cleaned out most of my stash of pearls so that I could outline the edges with them. I like how it came out but would go smaller next time. I could not really change it this time because I had already sewn the edges before I noticed I was not happy with the size.
