Daisy Mojo

OK, so I took the plunge today and entered the Mojo Sketch Challenge (Mojo241).  I have looked at this site before but have been a little afraid to enter :)  The sketches are more involved then what I'm used to making ... and it definitely is a challenge for me to put together so many layers.  I have done a few cards like this in the past, but it's definitely out of my comfort zone.  Hope you like what I came up with.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my version of the sketch:

"Spring Daisies"

Stamp:  Daisy Thanks (Stampendous)
Paper:  Old Olive, Whisper White, Certainly Celery polka-dot DP (SU!)
Ink:  Stazon Black, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Blender pen, Circle Nesties (Spellbinders), sponge, 5/8" Old Olive Satin ribbon, Large Pearl brad (Kaiser), Square Lattice embossing folder (Sizzix), sticky strips, adhesives, and dimensionals

I used the marker layering technique to watercolor the daisies.  I cut them out with a circle die-cut, but left the image in the die-cut, sponging the inside with Certainly Celery ink before removing it.

I mounted all the layers as shown above, popping up the embossed panel to add depth.

For the inside, I used a Whisper White panel with a 1 1/2" strip of Certainly Celery DP at the bottom.


You may have noticed that the Search Engine I put on the website is now gone :(

It didn't work ... I was so hopeful that it would!  I think I need to get one of the "Blogs for Dummies" books or something :)

Anyways, it's back to the long list of labels on the sidebar.  At least you can use the labels to search if you're looking for something in particular.  I have the Stampin' Up stamp sets listed first ... followed by everything else in alphabetical order.
