Mojo Monday #389 and ATCAS#59




Hi everyone!!!



Monday means a new sketch over at the Mojo Monday Blog.
Julee's fun sketch for the week:


 
 

and my card:
 





Patterned papers from Kaisercraft.
Flowers and leaves stamps and dies from Verve.  Sentiment banner dies also from Verve.
Arrows cut with Tim Holtz chevron die.
Some dry wall tape, sequins and black plastic dots complete the picture.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.



I've also made a card for the current code word 'Green' over at the Addicted to CAS Blog


 
 
 
This is the card I have made:
 
 


 
 
 
Leaves stamp from PTI.  I stamped the leaves with Bundled Sage and Black Soot DIs, on watercolour paper that I've sponged with the Bundled Sage DI.
Butterfly stamp from KaiserCraft.  Painted the butterfly with Bundled Sage and Stormy Sky DI and added some stickles for shine.
The frame and square was cut from moss green cs.
Sentiment stamp from Verve.
Added black plastic dots and it was done.
 
 
 
Thanks so much for the visit - always a pleasure to have you here!!!

Hope to see you again soon!!!

Donna Ellis said...

woooo! I like the way you have used 3 diamond shapes off kilter like that and your entire take of the sketch is interesting, Miss Petra! I especially love your butterfly CAS card, though. How beautiful your layered butterfly is! hugs, de

Wanda Cullen said...

Petra, you have such a creative mind and I'm loving both of these cards a lot! Love your layered frames on the flipped mojo sketch! The geometric patterns add such a contemporary flair! The CAS design just rocks with the touch of sparkle and shine!

MaryH said...

Two more brilliant cards in your arsenal of great cards. #1 is so bold with all the simple graphic designs and I really love the way you've been using this layered frame technique on your cards. A wonderful design detail. #2 is equally lovely, more CAS & your wonderful butterfly looks as though he's made of pearly abalone shells. This is so lovely. You constantly amaze me with each visit when I get to enjoy your design style. TFS & Hope you had a great wkend. Hugs

Hannelie said...

Sjoe!!! So mooi Petra!
Ek verkyk my aan daai skoenlapper!
Lyk sommer of hy kan wegvlieg met die pragtige shimmer daarop!
Mooi dag daar (hier waai die wind ons weg!)

Two more fabulous cards Petra. Love the first one - so linear and geometrical with bold colours and the second is softer with that gloriously shimmery butterfly.

Hugs.
