For All Things Mojo

Dang, I know I’ve used these colors before AND for a Mojo Monday but Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate are just SUCH a beautiful color combination. Here is my card for today’s Mojo Monday Challenge!

And this was today’s Mojo Monday Sketch. As you can see, I chose to go portrait instead of horizontal and I just wasn’t “feelin’ ” it with the horizontal, lol! 🙂

Plus it looks as if I’ve shot myself in the foot as I had this set, For All Things Stamp Set, out on my desk as I need to design a Make and Take for an upcoming workshop. In retrospect perhaps I should have saved this card for that and made something else for today. Oh well!

This set always scares me for just the briefest of moments as I tend to forget the stamps have a very “linen” look about them. This gives a great effect which is particularly good for creating backgrounds as I did with the leaf, stamping in Smoky Slate Classic Ink onto Smoky Slate Cardstock.

The stamping under my leaves was one of those wonderful freakish things I hadn’t planned but worked to my advantage. Either I hadn’t cleaned, or hadn’t cleaned very well, this stamp from the last time I used it causing some of the Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink to blend with my Smoky Slate Classic Ink. Combined with the linen look of the stamp I’d say whatever happened, happened VERY well!
