Mojo Monday

 Happy Mojo Monday everyone! You'll want to play along for a chance to win a free Verve set since it's the first challenge of the month!  I really had fun playing with this sketch!  I did a watercolor wash on the background with Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron distress inks then splattered with an eggplant shade of purple Pelikan watercolor paint.  Next, I layered a Martha Stewart circle tag and yellow seam binding. I popped the sentiment panel with foam tape and layered white embossed flowers and Simply Chartreuse die cut leaves and finished it off with some enamel dots.  Here's what I used...

STAMPS: Lean on Me (flowers, sentiment) - Verve
                  Sunny Days (leaves) - Verve
                  Making a Statement (grid frame background) - Verve
PAPER: Ranger watercolor CS, White (PTI), Elegant Eggplant (SU) and Simply Chartreuse (PTI).
INK: Daffodil Delight, Kiwi Kiss, Versamark, Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron distress inks by Tim Holtz.
ACCESSORIES: Sprightly Sprigs, Rounded Scallop Frame, Pointed Flowers - dies by Verve; Enamel dots by Recollections; Seam binding; Martha Stewart tag.
