Bird and Bear Sweetness

What do you do when you have NO MOJO? Nada...none! Beats me! So I decided just to try putting together some pretty things and hope they help me to get back in the groove! :)

This adorable stamp is called Bird and Bear and it's from Penny Johnson designed for Stampavie. When I don't know what else to do, I just color! And I will tell you this WAS a fun stamp to color!

First I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored using Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush to blend.

I cut and embossed the image with oval Nestabilities, then cut and embossed the Majestic Purple Light layer with the NEW Spellbinders Big Scalloped Oval . Just for fun I added a scalloped oval layer behind that using Majestic Purple Dark Prismatics cardstock.

The designer paper is Basic Grey's Kioshi . The ribbon is May Arts Purple 5/8" Sheer . The buttons are from my stash, and they are threaded with May Arts Burlap String in pink , ivory and purple burlap string.

Thanks for stopping by today! I will be back when my mojo returns. Until then...
