Mojo Love



[Don't miss my special celebration giveaway, open through December 23]

I snuck in some stampy playtime yesterday and decided to play along in this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge (#170). Here's the sketch:



I used Verve stamps and a Verve die to create the focal panel. First, I die-cut a white panel using Verve's Vintage Oval die. The next layer is a lime piece that has been stamped first in Kiwi Kiss ink with one of the Text Objects background stamps and second in black ink using the Vintage Oval Frame. I hand-trimmed it flush with the stamp outline and layered it onto the white die-cut. Next are two hearts from Text Objects, stamped onto two of the patterns from Basic Grey's Marjolaine collection, and a sentiment flag with the word "Love" stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink.

Here's a detail shot:



Instead of the circle at the upper left, I stuck on some rhinestone flourishes. The notch along the bottom of that dark grey floral pattern was done with a Martha Stewart Flourish punch.

Through December 31, enjoy a 15% discount on Text Objects and all of Verve's newest releases. While supplies last.

Before I go, continued thanks for all of your sweet comments on Sunday's giveaway post. They're like little virtual hugs -- so heartwarming and so very appreciated! Thanks also for your input on the post office complexities! Guess who hasn't yet made it there after all? So much left to do still, beginning with getting my littlest one well again. Poor little guy :(
