MOJO Monday #241 sketch (see below). This card gives you a sneak peek of a couple new products that will be available on June 1st (Raspberry Ripple cardstock and ink, Midnight Muse ink that are both are part of the new In-color 2012-2014 collection). That little banner strip at the top is also a sneak peek at some new DSP that will be available on June 1st too. The flowers on the main image are from a beautiful stamp set called Elements of Style that I colored with my Stampin Write markers in Blushing Bride (retiring May 31st), Raspberry Ripple and Garden Green. The humming bird is stamped with Midnight Muse (love it!) and then fussy cut with my paper snips.
I don't know why, but lately I have really been into fussy cutting. I usually get about half-way through and think to myself "goodness, this is time consuming, what was I thinking?" but I do so like the look of it when I'm done that I forget how much work it seemed (especially without my readers - sometimes my arms are not quite long enough to see what I'm doing). I used a couple different types of texture on this card - the stripes embossing folder was used on the card base and the square lattice embossing folder was used on the garden green layer. The Paper Doily Large Sizzlit Die also adds a level of depth and texture to this card. I sponged a little marina mist and pool party ever so lightly around the flower circle - not sure how well it shows up in the photo. Here's a close up of the image:
This is such a fun sketch - I'm sure I'll be using it more than once. Playing along with Mojo Monday is a great way to keep myself creatively challenged. I would really encourage you to play along if you can - its lots of fun. And...I get so many great ideas from the other people who are participating. Thanks for stopping by to visit - I'm sure glad you did. I hope you saw something that inspired you! Hugs.
