Mojo Monday #73


I had my whole card finished for Mojo Monday when I realized I used the same DP for last week's sketch!  Aahh!  So I made two!  Both of them took way too long and I am not 100% happy with either of them.  Here's the sketch:


And here's the first one:


This uses Tea Party DP, Sweet Stems for the flower and Always in My Thoughts for the sentiment.  The image is stamped on vellum cardstock in Stazon, then colored on the back with markers.  I realize I did not do the side panel quite right--this whole card was a comedy of errors.  It was finally put together with Tombow glue because I ripped it apart so many times there was no place left to tape! 

And the second:


I NEVER put flowers on my cards--well, hardly ever--because of the bulk, but I finally broke down and got some Pretties.  I dyed this one with Baja Breeze ink and added some Not Quite Navy with a paintbrush, although you can't really tell in the photo.  The sentiment on this one is a tad bit crooked; it was stamped in Baja Breeze and I colored the word "friend" with my black marker.  After these, my stamp table is being cleaned up for the day!!!

Send me both please! :) They are both very nice, but I like the softness of the 1st one.
Greetings, Ilse

Such pretty cards!

Ok...I guess I'm the strange one...but I love the second one best! Then again...I've never been one for soft pastel colors either.

We are expecting MORE snow this weekend so seeing these nice spring colors was GREAT - Both cards are wonderful but I think I'd vote for the first one.

Both of these cards are exquisite LeAnne! WOW. Love the tea party paper on the first one - stalking Mr. Brown to get mine - and the primas and colors on the other one are just to die for! Gorgeous! ~chris

beautiful card. I just ordered this stamp set so I can't wait to get it. I need to update my blog when I get a minute. I have been scrapbooking with stampin' up kits lately. I'm gonna have to get a copy of the US catty :) can't wait to see the new goodies in there.

Such pretty cards, LeAnne. I participated in Mojo Monday for the first time today. (Wednesday!) Anyway, I love the way you used the vellum and I love your sense of humor!
