Mojo River Butterfly...

Hiya!

I managed to find some time yesterday to play along with this week's Mojo sketch challenge. This is what I came up with:

I was a bit cross with myself cos I made it yesterday and thought I would wait until today to photograph it in the daylight, but then was so tired this afternoon that I forgot! So I had to settle for the kitchen bench... and artificial light - oh well! One of these days I really must get a light box!

I made the main panel by stamping the Friendly background stamp with Versamark onto glossy cardstock. I then brayered over the top using Baja Breeze and a smidge of Not Quite Navy. Finally, I stamped the silhouette images from Just Believe over the top with Stazon. The versamark ink resists the dye-based inkpads that I brayered with so the words come through as white in the background - such a great effect!

The Baja Breeze panel in the background was also stamped with the Friendly stamp. The DSP is from the gorgeous Love Letter collection - love that grid effect with the swirl printed over it. The edges were sponged with River Rock ink to add a distressed feel, and I stamped a butterfly on River Rock cardstock and added some pearls. The little side panel I decided to use ribbon for and went with black grosgrain and a big bow.

That's all for now! Thanks for stopping by...
