Mojo Monday Week #10

Wow! It's already week 10 of Mojo Monday? I think that calls for something cool for this week's prize. How about the winner of this week's sketch challenge gets a Verve Visual stamp set of their choice? (Thoughtful Phrases, Fancy Florals, Winter Wonder, Seasonal Circles, Wonderful Wishes or Starlight Starbright) For this special round of Mojo, I must receive a link to your square card using the following sketch by 10PM Mountain (Midnight ET) Saturday November 10. I will announce a winner on Sunday. To be eligible for the prize you must have a shipping address in the US or Canada and cannot be a current member of the Verve Visual Design Team. The rules: 1. Your card must be square. 2. You must follow the sketch. 3. Have fun! Easy enough? :)

My card uses my new set by Flourishes called Flourished Christmas. If you haven't checked them out, you should. Their stamps are even more beautiful in person than they are on their website. And they ship super fast and have been so helpful and supportive of me in my Verve adventure. And for $12.50 this set was a no brainer! I absolutely love this reindeer. Anywho, on with the card... I stamped the reindeer in Versafine Sepia Brown and colored with Prismacolors and Gamsol. Oh, and I added a hint of sparkle to the hooves with a clear Spica glitter pen. Next I inked up just the antler flourishes with VersaMark and embossed with Irridescent Ice. So sparkly! :) I then added a little shading around the animal with a grey tombow marker and sponged the edges with creamy caramel, close to cocoa and chocolate chip inks. Next I stamped Rejoice in Cranberry Crisp and sponged around the edges with the same three shades of ink. These layers are both matted on Chocolate Chip. The red background paper is from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper pad and the partial Cool Caribbean circle is cut and embossed with my Nestabilities Circle die and then I inked up just the antlers from the deer with Cool Caribbean and stamped around the circle as a background. The knotted bow is tied using a wide satin May Arts ribbon, and the card measures 5.25" square.

Hope you have fun creating with this sketch. If you upload to SCS, use keyword Mojo10. :)
