Mojo Monday #346

Hi everyone.


Second post for the day.  This time joining in the fun over at the Mojo Monday Blog.

This is Julee's fun sketch:

 
 
and the card I've made:
 

 
 



 
 
For my card I've used four different Distress Inks and water on my craft sheet to color my cs.  I've stamped the dots with a bg stamp from Glitz and added a strip of washi tape.  The flower stamp is from the 'Lean on me' set by Verve and I've cut the flower with the corresponding die.  I have stamped the flower on black cs and heat embossed with white EP.  Stamped the flower again on the cut-off piece of the coloured paper and layered the two flowers and I love the look of it.  Stamped the Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Thank you very much'.  Stamped the chevrons from the 'Borderline' set by Verve and added the arrows from a piece of dp laying on my desk.  The main panel as well as the flower and arrows are on foam tape.  I have sprayed the coloured cs with Heirloom Gold, Perfect Pearls Mist for a bit of shimmer, but it does not show on the photo at all.
 
 
 
Not my usual kind of card, but I had a lot of fun creating it and I quite like how it turned out!
 
 
Thanks for popping in and have a lovely day!!
 
Kind regards
Petra
