Wild Thing Mojo

Hi friends!  It's the start of another week and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch!  This week's sketch is a simple one, so you can dress it up or dress it down as you wish.  I originally had a really frilly circle card in my head for this sketch, but when I sat down to stamp I was inspired by a few different things.


First up was this fabulous Zoology paper by BoBunny.  I've got a bit of a soft spot in my heart for animal prints.  Not for clothing, mind you - but accessories, you bet ya!  I've got a lovely zebra striped purse that I get compliments on everywhere I go, plus I recently became the proud owner of these fabulous little Hello Kitty zebra slippers!  Can you say purrrrrrr?  {grin}  They definitely make this Hello Kitty lover's heart sing!

Copic Coloring GuideNext up, I was inspired to use the Wild Thing set after seeing some of the adorable samples by Colleen Schaan in the new Copic Coloring Guide.  It's always been one of my favorite sentiments, and when I saw her use it with a couple different jungle creatures, I couldn't wait to pull out this adorable little giraffe from To the Moon.  I colored him with Copics and paper pieced his scarf, stamping the Wild Thing sentiment at the bottom of the square and rounding opposite edges.  For my embellishments, I chose to add a few free flying kites, accented with gold pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty and some baker's twine.  Best of all, the whole card was done in less than 30 minutes and I was able to spend Sunday afternoon with family!  Hooray!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous start to your week and find a little time to get your Mojo on amidst all the busy-ness of life!
