It's All About Stamping

It’s Monday…Time for a Mojo!


mojo91I have a busy week ahead so I want to start with a sketch challenge.  I doubt I’ll get another chance to post this week.

The Mojo sketch challenge is found here.

This is a pretty bold card for me.  I’m not much of a red & black kind of person but once in awhile it’s good to get out of the rut!  And I wanted to use some of the Rockability DSP that’s retiring soon.  I love the black on black stripe!

This is a Real Red card base with layers of Basic Black, Old Olive DSP, and Rockability.  The image is from the retiring stamp set Heartfelt Thanks.  It’s a 2-step stamp set.  I used the Real Red and Old Olive Markers on the flowers then inked the outline stamp with Bravo Burgundy.  The Basic Black scallop was made with the Scallop Edge Punch.  There are 2 black eyelets at the top and one at the bottom on the flower. 

The sentiment is from the new Teeny Tiny Wishes set.  I’m going to get TONS of use from that set!  I love it!  I stamped the sentiment with Basic Black then punched it out with the Word Window Punch.  Then I put it back in the punch and shortened it on one side.  The flower is from the Trio Flowers punch.  The ribbon is non-S.U.  The piercings on the Real Red was an afterthought and I already had the dimensionals behind it so I used the Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool to mark dots, then used the Basic Black marker to make the dots black.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful day!
