MOJO 80 - Dream a Little

Here is my take on this week's MOJO80 Monday challenge. I've wanted to use the Dream a Little set since I got it, but was waiting for the right layout. I am a huge fan of Basic Grey paper and their new Porcelain paper is no disappointment! The colors are stunning and match incredibly well with SU!'s Pink Pirouette. I really couldn't find a pattern paper that I liked for the marbled background, so I stamped the flower in Kiwi Kiss and colored the flowers in with the Kiwi Kiss reinkers. I added some Stickles for a little spark. The flower base is inked in Pink Pirouette and the outline is Riding Hood Red. The sentiment (from Verve) is stamped in Riding Hood Red and sponged in the same color to make it pop. The humming bird is stamped in Baja Breeze and then stamped two additional times and layered one on top of the other using dimensionals to make it look like it was really flying. I colored the bird using the Baja Breeze reinkers for some shadows and added some Baby Blue Stickles to its wings and eye. Finally, I used some pink Dew Drops to the left.

Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain DP, Pink Pirouette
Stamp: Dream a Little; Verve
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Nestabilities, Stickles, Dew Drops, Pretty in Pink grosgrain
