Mojo Monday #137



It feels like I haven't participated in Mojo Monday for a while. It's been at least two weeks, maybe three. But now the school card swap is over, planning is coming to an end, and I feel like I can breathe a little. I had a fun time with this sketch. I always have some difficulty with proportion of the elements/pieces, so what I plan never ends up working. This time though, it feels like the card came together better than I expected. 


I love the way the fresh snow stamps on Summer Sunrise. I like it on Lemon Tart as well, but I thought it was a little too difficult to see in pictures. 


In the end, it's a simple, neutral colored card. I really like Copic colored butterflies, so I think I just might color more of them. :)

Great interpretation of the sketch! I love how you placed the plain butterflies to the side and then focus on that one beauty as the main image, very striking!!
