Mojo Monday-To You from Me


Yesterday I made dinner for all of my husband's side of the family. I was super busy getting everything prepped and cooked. I wanted to find a moment to stamp, but that never happened. My kids are off-track for 3 weeks, so since I didn't have to get them ready for school this morning, I stamped intstead! I decided to follow the mojo monday sketch challenge for this week. You can check it out here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_AAnIwNqdF7I/SXAXg6ow_SI/AAAAAAAAELw/Hw2pdto4Kyg/s1600-h/Mojo70Sketch.gif I used my precious Parisian Summer DSP before it officially retires in a few hours! LOL!
I also used "Garden Silhouettes" for the main panel. I like that it is long and fits the rectangle panel nicely. I used my SU! markers to color the image and then stamped it. I also added a few pearl gem stickers for the flower centers and the corners. Everything is sponged with So Saffron Ink and a sponge. I also did a little sewing on the main panel with a straight stitch and a zig-zag stitch on the horizontal polka dot panel. I aboslutely love the color of thread that I have in my machine right now. It goes with everything. I bought it to sew up my son's football pants and have used it for my cards ever since.
I also did a bit of distressing on the main focal image and the outside edge. This was a fun sketch to use and I may make another one sometime this week with it.
I will be delivering my friend's birthday present today, so this is the last card that will be added to her collection. I hope she likes them. I will probably head to the mall later today to pick up a little something extra to go with it. Thanks for fluttering by!
