Mojo 100


Mojo Monday on Tuesday! I'm on a roll! I wasn't exactly sure about this sketch until I sat down to do it and I must say, I am happy with how it turned out. I love frog stamps almost as much as those cute Mouse House stamps.
Here are the details:
That cute frog image is from a brand new Penny Black acrylic set that I just love. I stamped it twice, colored both with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I cut one image out with a nestie and then cut, embossed with clear ep and popped the other one over the original. I added some Blue Moon yellow seed beads to the flower center and popped that up separately. I also stamped, colored, embossed and cut and popped 3 dragonflies just for fun. The paper is all DCWV Citrus Stack except for the white and the SU Kiwi Kiss. The green backgrounds were cut out with nestie scallops. I used my CB dots embossing folder for the large scallop and the small white circle just for extra texture. That sentiment tag is from a clear acrylic set I have of unkown origin. I added a brad to that along with a dragonfly for extra embellishment. Finally, the blue polka dot ribbon came from Michael's. I think I will just put the word Birthday in the inside in great big letters. Hope this brings a smile to your face and a little cheer to your day:))

  15. Hi Emily,
    Me again.
    Thank you so much for your lovely comment you are so kind. The strawberry Tilda is sitting on is a Magnolia stamp and I masked her and stamped the strawberry for her to sit on before colouring. I hope you love the distress inks as much as I do to distress and colour with. Remember to use watercolour paper and I use 300gsm hp if that is helpful to you.
    hugs
