It is the first Monday of the month and that means contest week for all you mojo Monday fans! There will be one card chosen by the mojo makers for every 75 cards that is the mojo-ist and the winners will all receive their choice of a Verve stamps set valued at $24 or less. What an awesome prize huh? Below are this week's sketch and my sample.
I have been having a bit of a struggle lately with some things so I thought this verse would be a perfect reminder how everything is on God's perfect timing and not mine. This is a very good thing but is sometimes difficult when going through it. Besides, here in the northeast we are experiencing the changing of the leaves and the image and verse was very fitting for that too. So, this card is also for the Verve stamps project parade this month in which the theme is to make an encouragement or friendship card. How fitting this is huh? If you play along you have a chance to win a terrific Verve gift certificate for $30. Lots of Verve up for grabs this week!
I pulled out some dp from SU in my stash that I have not used in awhile. I am committed to using the supplies that I currently have and not purchase new. I would love some new stuff but I probably have enough paper to wallpaper my entire house and the neighbor's so must use it first. Anyway, I thought the colors were great for a fall card. I first stamped my leaf from the Autumn blessings set off once with pumpkin ink and then stamped it on ivory CS. The scripture from the Encouragement set was stamped over the top with chocolate and the edges were lightly sponged with wasabi ink while still in the circle die. Since, I have been asked by quite a few of you, the trick to the sponging is to really make sure that the sponge is fairly dry with ink. So you need to take some of the ink off of it after tapping it onto the ink pad. I also use circular motions starting off the die.
