Not that I really think my DH is checking out my blog at work today - but just in case!
Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge - you can see the sketch and Donn's card in Donna's last post, below.
I just loved this sketch! I had additional inspiration from my hero, Mel McCarthy over at Mel Stampz. Her blog is so full of great tips, techniques, templates and truly original and lovely artwork that I will never be able to work through all the ideas she so generously shares. Love ya', Mel ; ) !!!
I downloaded a terrific text page from her site and used it as the background for my stamped image. The image, from Sunshine Designs, is coloured with Copic markers and the background is sponged with a combination of Weathered Wood Distress Ink and Adirondack Stonewashed Dye Ink. I did an oops when I removed my mask, so I stamped a tiny chickadee from Inkadinkado and popped it over top to cover it! The patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Granola line.
As it came together, I started to think that it was looking very clean and masculine, so I decided that I would tuck this card away to give to my hubby on our (gulp)! 20th anniversary in a few weeks. As it's for Brian, I restrained myself from adding glitter and fiddly bits I actually really like how this card came out. Honestly, I don't think it needs anything else!
