Make it Mondays and Moxie Fab World

Happy Wednesday! So, the birthday celebrations and weddings are over for now. Thanks for your sweet comments on the birthday post for my little girl! We had her friends here for a party on Monday, so it was quite busy here! And thanks to all of you who voted for me at the Gallery Idol! I am sorry that the contest was over for me so soon. It was a lot of fun! But now I can sit back and relax watching what the other girls come up with! They are amazing! Last night I made a card using this week's Make it Mondays' technique and I thought I'd combine it with the Moxie Fab World challenge Fanatical About Botanical. Oh, I love the botanical theme! Here is the card:


First I die-cut the seed packet from Kraft. Then I used a dry brush to apply the white acrylic paint. The text is stamped with Fresh Snow ink. The larkspur is colored with copics.



I have to use acrylic paint more often. I own some! So, to find the video and the Make it Mondays contest, just go here and to join the Moxie Fab World challenge, go here.

I am wishing you a happy and dry day (it has been raining here for about 20 hours now)! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Everything Papertrey Ink, except for:
Black Ink: Tsukineko
Acrylic Paint: Lascaux
Other: Ribbon, Twine
