Welcome to the first of four days of Sweet November previews for the month of February. Today we are previewing "Bloom".
I combined Bloom with the Mushroom set which is also new for this release. I first stamped the Bloom image, masked it and then stamped the mushroom so it would appear she is perched atop it. After coloring the image with Copics I then cut it out and attached it directly to the card panel using a dimensional dot underneath the head portion of the image for a bit of lift. The patterned paper is mostly Crate Paper with a bit of My Mind's Eye. I cut the butterfly with the C.C. Designs Butterflies Cutters Die set and then punched two small ones using a Martha Stewart punch. I added an MME button and American Crafts ribbon as simple embellishments. You'll be seeing the MME Lost and Found buttons on several of the previews this week. I re-discovered several hardly touched packs of these in my embellishments basket and had to ask myself about why I was hoarding them! My motto for this year is to use it or lose it.
