Mojo Monday Week #41

Well, I'm so excited today!! I came across this wonderful blog by Julee Tilman!! She is a stamper/graphic designer/stamp designer and has started her own stamping company Verve Visuals...Well, every Monday she shares a sketch for us stamping gals/guys to try out!! I always feel I need a bit of a creative jump start on Mondays so this is what I've always needed!! I'm really looking forward to creating on Mondays now with the Mojo Sketches!!! Here is sketch #41..
I looked through some of my scrap paper and found this adorable polka dot baby paper that I just love...I'm in love with the color brown with blue or sweet!! If you look back at my past posts many of my creations use these color combos. Anyway, I started with a PTI scored white card and used the polka dot paper as my first layer, then the lighter blue paper for the larger square and PTI white card stock for my smaller square..I distressed the outer edges of the blue paper to give it a "fuzzy" look similar to the little baby sweater..I also distressed the white square with Burnt Umber ink to give it a bit of depth..I stamped the small baby sweater from Stampendous onto the white square..I then re-stamped the image on a separate piece of white paper and colored it in using soft pastels. I really like how the pastels made the sweater look fuzzy and cozy! I then cut it out, leaving behind the hanger..I placed it over the original stamped image with a dimensional..I like how the pastels made the sweater look cozy and fuzzy and I also like how the sweater is over the gives it more of a 3 dimensional look. The sentiment is from PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings set. I used my corner rounder punch to create the scalloped edge and went back through and punched small holes in each scallop. I like how you can see the blue paper through the holes...I finished the card with a light blue/brown polka dot layered ribbon and 3 brown brads. Very simple but I hope that the new mommy I am giving it to enjoys it!! Thanks for looking!!
