Mojo Monday 241

I made this for Mojo Monday 241. It was a good excuse to use some of my new Verve stamps! I love the sentiments on their Words Cannot Express set. But what I like most about the set, is that the sentiments are long and can be used on large circles or can be used to fill large spaces. I often find I'm stuck with smaller sentiments that look a bit out of place on a larger area, so I bought this stamp set specifically to help with that! I painted the edge of the flowers with white acrylic paint, as they were originally gold, and sponged the edges of the circle with frayed burlap ink. I stamped the butterfly image (verve), on the same paper as the backgroud paper.

Stamps: Words Cannot Express (Verve), All A Flutter (Verve)
Ink: Early Espresso (Stampin Up), Frayed Burlap (Tim Holtz)
Cardstock: Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Papers: Portrait (Crate Paper), Portabello Road (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Prima flowers, lace and ribbon (Fantasia Scrapbook store - Australia), white acrylic paint, sewing machine, edge distressor
