SOA Mojo

Happy Monday! Today we have a very special mojo sketch over on the Mojo Monday blog. The sketch is doubling as one of the many challenges in the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's {SOA} event going on this week! The event starts today and runs through May 31. A $5 donation gets you access to the site, where there are tons of freebies, challenges and fabulous prizes to be won. All proceeds go directly to the Alzheimer's Association. Verve is hosting both a Mojo Sketch challenge as well as a Verve Sketch challenge at the event, so there's plenty of chances to win some Verve. The challenges are located on the SOA site in the Card Challenges section.

My sample card for the mojo sketch uses the new Up, Up and Away set and a sentiment from Great Expectations. I stamped the balloon and the scroll decoration and colored with Copic markers, then used my Classic Circle Nestabilities as a stencil to sponge with Soft Sky ink. I repeatedly stamped the scroll decoration on Riding Hood Red in Riding Hood Red ink for a tone-on-tone background for the double panels and matted with a thin layer of black. The top paper is from some Wild Asparagus papers in my stash and the bottom paper is from the Girl Friday papers by Cosmo Cricket. I added a little circle sentiment to the side and stamped the Best of Luck sentiment from Great Expectations in it and accented with some little black rhinestones.

I'm so exhausted as I write this that I think I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow's post to show you the Verve Sketch for Stampin Out Alzheimer's and my sample. I'll just tease you and tell you it's one of my favorite cards I've ever made. If you're a SOA participant you can check it out here, otherwise you'll have to wait until tomorrow! Have a fabulous Monday, peeps!
