Sitting Pretty

Hi, I'm back again today with another post.  My Favorite Things is hosting their monthly guest designer challenge at Splitcoast and this month it's all about the flowers.  The challenge immediately made me think of my Sitting Pretty Jolinne stamp just waiting to be inked up for the first time.

This project ended up totally different than the vision I had in my head, but not it a bad way.  I stamped Jolinne onto ivory Neenah paper and colored her with my copics.  I added glaze pen to her eyes and the flower on her hat.  I made 3 layered flower out of aida cloth using my Prickley Pear hibiscus die, colored it with dye inks, crumpled it up, and sprayed it with gold shimmer mist.  I also added a cream panel stamped with MFT's Boho Blossoms in Memento Rich Cocoa.
MFT is hosting their monthly release part tomorrow on Splitcoast.  Hope to see you there!

I love the tea card but I like the "sitting pretty" even better. I think cards with different textures are more appealing and yes the close ups do help.
Any suggestions for man cards?
