Greetings All and Happy Long Weekend!! YAY!! We are hanging around this weekend as I vowed to never travel on these busy holiday weekends. The traffic simply makes me insane! So we're sticking close to home, enjoying the pool club opening, lacrosse championship games at Gilette Stadium, and visiting family. We will be celebrating my darling sister-in-law's birthday as well! I took the opportunity to bust out this week's MFT sketch to get me started.
Her favorite color is purple so I started there adding grey and yellow as my accents. I've been dying to ink my new ALM - I've Got Your Back. It has been inked with Momento and she is colored with my Copics. I paper pieced her shirt and the letters U and R using papers from MME.
I used the Photo Corner and Chevron Stripes Die-namics to compliment the background. I used an embossing folder to give a bit of richness to the middle layer (white) behind the flowers. It really added just the right amount of texture that I was looking for.
I used both the Royal Rose and Rolled Mum Flower Die-namics layered together to create the fun and fluffy flower cluster. I added a resin flower in the center of each one for some added depth and color.
Finishing Flourishes, for my greeting.
Have a fun, safe and creative long weekend!!
