Mojo 124 Blessings
Good Monday Morning Peeps!
Today I am sharing a card with you that was made with the sketch on the Mojo Monday Blog.
I started the card with a base of always artichoke. I followed it up with some white that I had done some scoring for the BG. I used some DS paper out of some retired hostess packs in always artichoke and so saffron. I matted each piece of the DS paper with some card stock in the same colors.
I wasn't sure where I was going to go from there. I thought about it awhile and looked through some of my stamps to find something that would fit the circle element in the sketch. I finally choose the "Herb Expression" set. I don't know my herbs that well, so I don't know what color the flower heads of this herb, Basil, should be. Probably a good thing because not knowing frees me up to use the colors I want. I stamped the herb onto some white card stock with black stazon. I first masked off the name of the herb with a bit of post-it note. I used some always artichoke and so saffron ink to color in the herb image with my aqua painter, using a light touch. I also brushed a bit of so saffron over the "Blessings". I used my circle and blossom circle nestie to cut out the image and it's mat.
I used some so saffron and always artichoke ribbon across the bottom and added three silver sticky rhinestones.
Well, that is all for me today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!
