In an effort to keep my creativity going, I wanted to try a challenge. I like to work with sketches and found a website, Mojo Monday (http://mojomonday.blogspot.ca/), that provides a weekly sketch as inspiration. I decided to give it a try. Here is a copy of this week’s sketch, Mojo 260:
I’ve been waiting to use the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and matching framelites since I got them a few weeks ago. I combined them with the Orchard Harvest DSP. Guess what, they made for a perfect Thanksgiving card! Maybe I’ll actually get some cards in the mail for Thanksgiving this year – a first for me! Here is my take on the sketch (I had to stretch it out to an A2 card rather than a square to accommodate the sentiment):
Using the matching framelits makes it so easy to cut out the shapes. I can see more of these matching combos in my future!
A quick tip: in order to change the colour of the apple seeds, I stamped the apple in the main colour of ink and then went over the seed with a Early Espresso Marker. A perfect mix of two colours without the hassle of masking, removing ink etc.
