Jot Mood Board challenge for August

I did something a little out of character for me.
I made my version of a layered flower-filled rhinestone-dripping shabby chic style card.

The reason why is this gorgeous Mood Board at Jot Magazine for this month. It simply pulled me in this direction.

Not even intentionally.
My inspiration to start with is those leaves in the top right. I wanted to do something similar as a focal point in my project. So I cut a bunch out with my Silhouette and then threw them onto my white woodgrain background paper whilst I figured out what's next.

Mixing in those royal blues was my next logical thought, and well... I guess a flower became an obvious answer. Although I didn't have the right shade of blue so I painted what I did have with a little spray ink. More blue flowers followed, and then at that point I figured I was committed to this direction so the rhinestone swirls were pulled out too.

I guess what does take it back to my usual style is the sentiment. It's a little more fun and funky than the card would lead you to believe on first impressions. It's from Kellie Stamps' newest set called 'Seriously?!' and is currently up for preorder. I couldn't figure out where it would fit on the front so I added half of it to the front like an invitation tempting you to look inside. And that's where I stamped the rest of it.

Will you join in with us at Jot Magazine and make something with this inspiring Mood Board? You can find all the details here.
