Mo's Challenge 14

Hi This is my entry for Mo's Challenge Blog 14. There is a sketch to follow, which I flipped as shown, plus of course one of Mo's gorgeous digi stamps. The latter is not difficult as there are hundreds to choose from. In fact I had been a good girl and not bought a thing since the beginning of December, but I spotted a couple of new images I didn't have, popped on over to her website and I was doomed from that second as I ended up buying 9 new images. Four of them I had longed for since they were released, but you know how it is, Christmas was coming and craft spending had to take a backseat! PUH!! So now I made up for it. However, for this card I used one of the very first digis I bought from Mo's site. She is called 'Rae with Journal' and is from a set 'Dani and Friends', which I believe, for you diehard rubber and acrylic fans, have recently been released with Stampavie in clear photopolymer stamps too.
So to my desgin. I used the gorgeous WRKM Tiffany Paper pad, and picked a particularly large and garish pattern as the background. Sometimes I pick out a paper and then colour accordingly, and sometimes I colour and then pick out the paper. This time I had already coloured, and as luck would have it, the right colours were in this sheet of paper, and even better it had toning plain sheets for the mats.
Wouldn't you know it, I meant to run the mats through with a Bug embossing folder and completely forgot! Call it an age thing. Who knows, it might have ended up looking too busy. The flowers are in fact three lovely green buttons from Autumn Leaves, and on top I stuck three gems which I coloured orange with a marker pen.

The stamp is coloured with chalks, Pitt Pastel pencils. I don't have many colours so was a bit limited for choice. Note to self, must look out for bargain bigger pack. The tiny butterfly was coloured with Sakura Stardust pens. It was difficult blending the chalks and I used Q-tips but there must be a better method out there, as they are quite large for small areas. If anyone knows of anything better, stick a comment under here please.....

Hope you like it.
