Hey folks! Well, apparently I forgot to post last week's mojo card sample I made- ugh. Back on track for you this week though. We had a great sketch to work with this week which works well with many types of images. Below are the sketch and my sample:
I tried to do something a bit different this week. I tend to use clean lines on my cards so I thought I would try something out of my comfort zone- distressing. I struggle a bit with it and this time is no exception as maybe I went overboard. I stamped my gorgeous June rose from Sweet N Sassy stamps onto Neenah white and colored it with copics. I used distress inks in antique linen, vintage photo and walnut stain for my distressing. I roughed up the edges with scissors and crumpled the paper as well. I also used a deco silver glitter pen on the distressed edges which is something that Kim Piggott does and I thought looked cool. I think maybe what I will do next time is either do a cracked glass technique or stamp over the colored image with a linen bg stamp. All of the layers were roughed with scissors, then distressed with walnut stain before blinging them up with the glitter pen.
