I'm back with my sample for this week's mojo sketch. I actually was able to start the day off with a card, and it felt great!
I hadn't had a chance to use this adorable Hello Pumpkin set, so I stamped him in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. After a year of playing with Copics, I've just recently started to finally "get it" in regards to shading, and I'm so pleased by how much better my coloring is turning out. It's nothing to write home about, but I see improvement and it makes me happy! :)
The papers are from my scrap pile. I think the yellow is from a Daisy D's pad and the orange is from Paper Salon. I matted both my image and the designer papers with Chocolate Chip, using the SU! scallop edge punch for the bottoms of both mats. I added three Karen Foster brads to the image panel and some chocolate chip grosgrain in a knotted bow. The card base is stamped with the background from Grateful Elegance in So Saffron on the same colored cardstock. I finished with the Hello pumpkin sentiment, stamped in Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed with clear EP.
This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
