It’s a Mojo Soho kind of Monday!

Posted on

Another Monday, another wonderful sketch from the very talented ladies over at the Mojo Monday Blog. This is this week’s sketch…

Mojo334Sketch

This is my take on the sketch and as you can see I have taken my masculine challenge very seriously this time, lol! 🙂 The card base is Very Vanilla Cardstock with Soho Subway DSP on the top section sponged in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. A strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock with the two cogs from the Clockworks Stamp Set stamped-off in Crumb Cake Classic Ink which was also sponged around the edges before being adhered to the card.

This was all then finished off with three Very Vanilla Candy Dots.

Onto both of these die-cuts I used stamps from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Classic Ink. “You make me happy” was stamped over the entirety of the Very Vanilla Cardstock with one additional one stamped on another piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock which with Stampin’ Dimensionals was then placed in the middle of the other Very Vanilla Cardstock.

Not everything is BLACK or WHITE…

Sometimes Whisper White is Very Vanilla instead and is mixed with the black! That’s what my combination for today’s Mojo Monday is at least. Here is this week’s Mojo Monday’s Sketch 311 by the very talented Julie Tilman.

Mojo311SketchWhen I first saw this sketch I won’t deny I was a tad apprehensive, was I hope for the challenge, but when I sat down today, it all came together very quickly and very easily. Here’s my interpretation.

Mojo 311 - Modern Medley - Thank you you're the best

And yes, I’m still sticking to my masculine themed card which worked well with the DSP Modern Medley and using Always Artichoke as the contrast color. Although… the ribbon is in actual fact the new Pear Pizzazz 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.

For the strip of Very Vanilla cardstock and for the circle embellishment I used one of the stamps from Gorgeous Grunge with Crumb Cake Classic Ink. I know, I know, this is my new FAVORITE stamp set but it’s just so fabulous for “dressing” up plain cardstock without overpowering it. Well, that’s what I think anyways 🙂
