Happy Thursday peeps! I am moving in slow motion today, and I have misplaced my mojo…not sure where it went, but hopefully it will return. I tried to make a card for the Mojo Monday sketch:
and ended up with two, neither of which really float my boat. My first one was an attempt to use some of the gorgeous papers in the Home for Christmas DSP pack…not even a bit of stamping on the front of this card at all:
It’s a little bit busy, but better than the second card, which uses Winter Wishes:
I finally figured out what it wrong with it, after looking at the photo; the Basic Gray ink is just too light for the watercoloring on the sled. The skate looks okay because the coloring is lighter than the gray, but the brown overpowers the gray. It’s sort of like wearing dark nylons with white shoes….a definite no-no! But since it’s already assembled, it’s going to stay that way. But I’ll know better next time! I did like stamping on some twill ribbon I snagged at a yardsale:
And I do like the ice skate!
Thanks for popping in!
A few more shots from our little outing earlier this week…love the shadows!
