Mojo 92

Here is my take on the Mojo sketch this week. I've just been cooking this up in my head since Monday and finally sat down to get it done. So much going on in the summer that it is hard to keep up with even 2 sketch challenges a week for me.
Here are the card details: I stamped the Mouse House stamp twice, colored both bunnies so I could pop one over the top of the original for more depth. I used my prismacolor pencils and gamsol for blending, then I added some crystal lacquer to the fish, duck and lemonade.
I used my EK Success waves border punch for the background strip. I didn't want to cover up all my paper and the wave border, so I used my Megabilities curved nestie and cut out the outside frame. I thought the striped DP looked like a sunset so I thought I'd used it in my frame. I added some Paper Studio water DP for my bunny to float on. The other DPs are by Pine Cone Press Papers and look oh so summery, don't you think? The sentiment is a clear stamp from Stampendous and I paper pieced the umbrella with my striped DP. The big umbrella is Jolee and I paper pieced over the original blue pieces with my striped DP so it would match better. The flip flops also came in the same pack of Jolee stickers. I paper pieced over the original paper on those with the flip side of my bottom DP. The image is up on dimensionals so there is lots of depth to this card. I'm happy with how this turned out.
I will probably save this card for my friend who takes a cruise every year. I always wish her "Bon Voyage".
