Mojo Monday Time




Julee has another great sketch for the Mojo Monday Challenge! Since I already had my Webster's Pages DP out, I went with another sea themed card using another of JustRite's new By the Sea images. This was my first attempt at making a sailor's knot...Barbara Anders has a very helpful tutorial on her blog. The link is also in my sidebar of Helpful Tips. I colored the image with Copics and sponged the edge of the Nestie shape. It's another rainy day in VA...good for stamping! :-) Thanks for stopping by and commenting...I really do appreciate it!

STAMPS: By the Sea Borders & Centers (JustRite)
PAPER: Webster's Pages (triple pack that includes Seaside Retreat, Garden Gala & Nature's Storybook)
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Copics, Peaches & Creme 4ply Worsted Weight 100% Cotton Yarn (Walmart), CB, Labels Four Nesties, Sponge

You are quick! Great work on that knot and the sketch. You're going to have to come out our way for a visit to get out of the rain - says me who lives out on the West Coast and is usually getting rain but right now are having fabulous weather. Hang in there - at least everything stays green and you get to stamp because outdoor activities aren't calling :D

Beautiful card Wanda! I took my parents to the USS Alabama in Mobile while they were here visiting. On the wall on the second deck was a big frame with all the different knots (probably twenty five of them!) and their names. It was amazing! Of course I took a picture and thought....wow, I could do these on my cards!

Well, I have to say that you have inspired me now... I am going to go to this blog and learn how to do this GREAT knot... I love all kinds of knots and have not done this one... You know what you give out... does come back.. and most of the time two fold... I asked for you learn something new... which you took and ran with it... and now it has come back to me!!!! See how wonderful the world is!!!! I love it...

This card is so wonderful... I love the colors you have used... I have that stamp and would never have colored it like this... I LOVE IT LIKE THIS... just so very different and pretty... Now you have expanded my day... thanks Wanda!!!!

Oh by the way.. the drawer stayed pretty good for a day... but last night I was on the phone with a friend, and the whole drawer knocked off my studio table... and I just threw it all back in there... I was also working on a book layout, so I didn't have time to put it all away nicely... but will today??? Maybe...

Have a fun day... and THANK YOU for all the lovely comments...

Lovely fishy, great flow to the scene across the card, and you captured the colours of the sea really nicely!
