Pixilicous Verve

This is an old Mojo Monday sketch. But it was way long ago and I'm too lazy to go through and find exactly which one it is.

I recently saw Joanne Basile's video tutorial on how do use that rolled rose die. And let me just say it's fabulous. When I tried to do it only own, it came out lopsided and flimsy (from me unraveling and re-raveling too many times). But that tweezer thing she does to hold it in place - genius. And while my rose is still a bit lopsided and I still need practice, that tweezer trick is soo cool.

So basically I did the rose and didnt really have a card to put it on. So I put together one pretty much based around that rose. I grabbed some pixie-licious paper (and I totally love that line) and went for just a purple and green color scheme. Sponged around the sentiment while it was still in its die. I stamped the "thoughts" on some left over scrap paper to make it stand out a bit. And I still say this is one of my favorite fonts from Verve. Its so whimsical and pretty. Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.
