Some Mojo Romance

In case you've been wondering, yes, I'm still alive! lol   I've really missed posting, and I'm glad to be able to do it again.  I'm starting off by doing this week's beautiful Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO231).  The sketch is pictured on the right.  The card that I created with this sketch is below.

The flower image is from the Bordering on Romance set (p. 11 in the Occasions Mini).  The saying is from the Kindness Matters set (p. 13 in the SAB brochure and p. 121 in the big catty), and you can get this set free with a $50 order (before shipping & tax) during Sale-A-Bration (SAB).  The designer paper is called Twitterpated DSP (p. 13 in the Occasions Mini), and the coordinating ribbon is Riding Hood Red 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon (p. 12 in mini).  The doily circle was made with the Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die (p. 7) from the Occasions Mini as well.  I used a few items from the big catalog, too.  I used an Antique Brad (p. 198) on the tag, Basic Pearls Jewels (p. 198) on the DSP strip and on the flowers, the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch (p. 212), and the Finial Press Impressions Folder (p. 219).  I made the flag end of the DSP strip with the 1-3/8" Square Punch (p. 212).

How do you like the watercoloring?  It's a new technique that I learned, and it's called Marker Layering Technique.  There's a step-by-step tutorial and video tutorial of this technique that Karen Barber made on SCS, and you can find it HERE.  I love this technique.  It really makes me look like I know how to watercolor!  lol  I'll be using this technique a lot, I'm sure!
