It’s a fabulous Mojo Monday morning! I thought I’d have some fun with the Fabulous Florets stamp set – which is a new one for me. The flower images in this set are super easy to stamp with – and just gorgeous. I can see that this will quickly become a favorite, especially when doing any kind of wedding ideas!
I’ve been working hard on my online class as you know and think I almost have the membership portion worked out! I decided to release the class and email the links until I can get the rest figured out – that way you can still have some fun learning how to brayer – so check that out at the bottom!
Here is this weeks Mojo Monday sketch and my interpretation – pretty literal this week, and I just love this card – especially the colors.I hope you do to – let me know what you think in the comments!
Creative Tips –
- I did something different with my color coach today. Usually I just thumb through it and find a main color I like. Today, I looked only at the combinations on the back until one spoke to me. I chose the Elegant Eggplant, Always Artichoke, Sahara Sand combo.
- I played with arranging how my colors were going to be layered – I have to admit, it took me at least 5 minutes to decide! I finally went with Always Artichoke as the card base and the then the rest fell into line.
- I was lucky, I had the Sahara Sand card front already pierced from another project, so that was easy this morning!
- For a little contrast, I stamped my Elegant Eggplant in various images using all the flowers and the leaf stamp. I stamped the bold image on Sahara Sand and cut that out to pop up as an embellishment.
- I just wanted something simple in the foreground, so I ran my Always Artichoke though my Big Shot using the Chevron Embossing Folder.
- For a greeting I used the new Hostess set – Banner Greetings. Isn’t it cute?!
- I did not have any ribbon in any of these three colors – which honestly was surprising! I must have used up all my Always Artichoke – I know I had some. So, I made my own. I distressed the edges of a piece of Sahara Sand and made a knot to resemble ribbon. Here a video on how to make Faux Ribbon
- For some depth in my card, I popped up the Sahara Sand card base, Flower and Banner.
It’s a good looking card – I love the color combination. I think it would work for anyone, and for a total masculine look, you could substitute the flowers for a general image – I’m thinking the Lacy & Lovely stamp set.
