I was recently advised to check out Mojo Monday.
This is a weekly challenge where a design team has posted a sketch and we are challenged to create something from that sketch.
This was last Monday’s sketch.
Okay first thing I did was look at other samples posted.
In the process I came across some other challenges.
Theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com offers a picture for inspiration.
This is what the challenge stated:
This week Starr is our creative host and she has chosen the theme of ‘Sweet Springtime’ along with this beautiful photo for inspiration and Starr asks that you create a card or project inspired by the photo USING PINK, GREEN, WHITE (or CREAM) and a SEWING ELEMENT!
Then I found:
Their challenge is to use a white medium of some kind.
I decided to do all three as well as incorporate my own medium of the month which is vellum.
Here is what I came up with:
Okay so I will try to dissect the card so you understand what I have done.
The die cut is Floral Frame Framelits # 127012
That made the pink and green flower rings.
Next I used a 2 1/2″ punch # 120906 to punch vellum out for the back of the flower rings.
I ran the circles of vellum through the Textured Impressions Embossing Folder “Lacy Brocade” # 127819
Next I used a brayer # 102395 to add the ink to just the raised area of the vellum and attached it to the back of the flower rings.
I added a green strip of card stock and a pink strip of card stock to the card under the flowers.
The pink strip I made striped by using my Simply Scored board #122334 I scored it every 1/4 inch then brayered on white ink.
On the right side of the card I added a green strip with hand dyed ribbon pieces.
On the left I added a hand dyed ribbon bow.
For the sewing element in the one challenge I made a hand sewn ribbon rose out of white ribbon.
Everything is layered onto Very Vanilla card stock # 101650
I had a lot of fun with this challenge and plan to keep it up.
The more challenge elements I include in one card the more difficult it becomes, which for me is half the fun.
