Finally After a Long Break a Mojo Card….

Mojo91Sketch

Here is the Mojo Monday 91 sketch and my interpretation of it. The girls and I took a run out to Hobby Lobby and Amy picked up this cute rubber stamp by Penny Black called Sisterhood.  She said “Ohh mom can you get this one!” How could I refuse!!!! Now I have my kids enabling my habit ha ha.  I tried the stamp on watercolor paper with the idea of coloring it with my new Prisma color Watercolor pencils and/or my watercolor crayons. I did go ahead and use Memento Tuxedo black ink…BUT as soon as I tried to use the watercolor crayons (which needed a lot of water) the ink immediately ran.  So I ended up coloring with my Copics. My theme throughout the card was dots LOL…I even dotted her pants and some of the yellow paper. I had fun with the color combo…not in my comfort zone. Was resisting the urge to put some kraft paper in there :-)

Supplies: CTMH Magic Moments Lv 2 PP, CTMH Vineyard Berry ribbon, Penny Black rubber stamp, Memento Tuxedo black ink, Sakura Gelly roll white pen, CTMH Rub-Ons, Hollyhock and Tulip Brads CTMH, Copic markers, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Cricut.

The girls and I went to the movies together and saw Night at The Museum 2…We all enjoyed it, but I don’t think it was as good as the first one. The boys came home from Scout camp tonight so I have a pile of wet smelly laundry to do.

Thanks for all your comments once again…makes me feel so special.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Enjoy!

Sarah this card is fabulous! I never would've thought these colors were out of your comfort zone, you rocked the sketch.
Oh how I wish we had a Hobby Lobby, it sounds like a wonderful place....

Not only are the colors great, but the coloring itself looks so perfect and polished. Thanks for sharing this!

What a cute stamp - you did an amazing job coloring it!! I love how your kids are "enabling your habit" cause mine do too:-) throwing all sorts of things into my cart...hee hee

Alanna said...

Too stinkin' cute Sarah. How fun that your kids "enabled" you. Hey, whatever works. I should try that one.

Leslie said...

absolutely darling.

Kathi Carlson said...

So, so cute! I LOVE it. That's a great image. Wish I had kids who enabled me. Instead they shake their heads ... like their dad. LOL. Oh, and laundry from Scout camp. I remember that soggy, smelly mess and don't miss it. By the way, I was/am a nationally certified Boy Scout camp director. Sometimes, the laundry was my own. LOL.

Sarah...you DO know I have a HL about 5 minutes from my house, don't you? You DO know you are making me seriously consider a run (w/o a coupon, I might add), don't you? LOL
This is a fantastic card! I love EVERY thing about it. *Ü*

Sometimes, when I am going to color, I heat set the ink with my heat gun. I have also been known to use Versamark and clear embossing powder over the image. Just some ideas to hopefully help you feel a little less frustrated if you encounter problems again!

Ewwwww on the smelly dirty laundry! LOL

Very cute card, Sarah! I love the color combo...you did an awesome job with the sketch and your Copic coloring skills are amazing...I thought the focal image was a cutout or something!

Wish we had a Hobby Lobby. Shoot, I'd settle for a Michael's or JoAnn nearby...

Thanks for sharing. And good luck with that laundry...yuck!
