Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Mojo Monday

1 2 3 8

I was feeling my mojo with this week’s Mojo Monday sketch! I used Avocado Arts stamps with some My Mind’s Eye papers, ribbon and paper tape. The chair one was colored with distess markers on the stamp which added to the aged feel of the card. I really like the other suit stamp and sentiment also! These cards were made for a Virtual Stamp Night at Splitcoaststampers.



Avocado Arts

I must admit that tea is one of my favorite drinks, either hot or cold. There seems to be a surge of stamps and dies out there recently to which I have started to accumulate. This digi stamp is from priscillstyles digi store and is for the progressive challenge at the Crafter’s Digital Art Centercdacpc23.

I used various embossing folders and Spellbinders dies for this card. The sketch is from this week’s Verve Stamps’s Mojo Monday #266 challenge. The color combo is from Play Date Cafe’s #157, plum, fuschia and wisteria.

When this digi stamp came out at Some Odd Girl, I just had to have her! She is SO stinkin’ cute!

Yesterday was Facebook Fun Day with Some Odd Girl and a challenge was given to print an image on fabric and color with Copics. I was able to find my Sticky Back Canvas, so into the laser printed it went with Bookish Tia on it! It was a little challenging to have a light touch with the coloring since the canvas sucked up the ink if you left it too long in one spot or tried to blend too much. I really like the effect!! Here’s my card:
