Mojo 79 & Texture


My card today is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and Basic Grey's challenge to use texture. I am so glad I have had the time to participate in them recently, they are great sketches!! Again I am using my Life set from Papertrey, I just LOVE this set!!! Last night as I was falling asleep I got the idea to use Flower Soft, and I am happy with how it turned out!! I have a few tubs of the Flower Soft and I chose to use Heather, the colors are so pretty so that is what I used as my color inspiration. I stamped the image in Papertrey's Ripe Olive twice, then without re-inking the stamp, I stamped 3 more times to give a shadow effect, stamping on Papertrey's Vintage Cream cardstock, Ripe Olive is such a beautiful color!!! I attached that layer to a layer of Ripe Olive and Plum Pudding, I then attached the Flower Soft, set aside to dry and worked on the rest of the card. The base card is Papertre's Vintage Cream, I added a layer of Plum Pudding, Ripe Olive and another layer of Vintage Cream. The dp I used is from Basic Grey's Porcelain paper pad, I love the pad, so many beautiful papers!!! I cut the dp and the Ripe Olive layer using my Martha Stewart Cornice Edge punch. I added the image layer, tied a piece of Plum Pudding Twill in a knot and stamped the "thanks" from the original Mixed Messages set.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
