Mojo Monday



It's a cloudy, snow-in-the-forecast kind of day but it's also Mojo Monday time and there's a great new sketch to play with...so...let it snow! I also made this for the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS where Judy has asked us to look at the techniques for 2011 and choose one to re-do. I love stitching details on cards and went with TLC304 to add Sewing/Stitching...Faux or Real. I needed to distress the Martha Stewart doily tag and started with some Antique Linen ink. Ehh...not enough...needed a hint of blue so added a tad of Baja Breeze ink. Still not grungy enough, so I added a bit of Soft Suede. I used Verve's Lovely Marquee die and cut off an edge to add a border for the sentiment. I hand dyed the seam binding using Tattered Angels Pomegranate Shimmer Mist and topped off the card with a lacy Prima flower. Thanks for stopping by...hope your week is starting off on a positive note!

STAMPS: Small Phrases (Verve)
PAPER: Julianne DP by K&Co, Vintage Cream
