Mojo Cardinal

Mojo Monday 71 banner weeinklings.blogspot.com

Mojo71Sketch For today's Mojo Monday sketch, I decided to use a RAK I got from my friend Barb--the cardinal from SU's past mini. I know this seems like a Christmas card, and maybe that's what I'll use it for, but then again, it would make a nice winter birthday card too:

Mojo Monday 71

Pretty self-explanatory; the image was stamped on watercolor paper and I colored it with my aquapainter and various inks. I realize now (what is wrong with me lately?!) that I took some artistic license and moved the right center panel down to the lower right! Just seemed to look better there....maybe I'll do another one the "correct" way. Sorry, Mojo sketch!! The sentiment is from Fresh Cuts and is mounted in a Vanilla HPH frame, embellished with a couple branch punches from my MS punch. There is a ribbon at the top of the black panel, it's hard to see!

  • Stamps: A Cardinal Christmas, Fresh Cuts
