Mojo Monday -- Great Job!



Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! :) Well, hubby and I are heading out early this morning to Northern Virginia for my dad's wedding. I got all the place cards done (I'll post a picture soon) and I think they turned out really nice. I have a quick posting for you today and then I'll be back on Monday with my regular posting schedule. Thanks for hanging in there with me this week :)

For my card today, I decided to ink up this adorable image from the new Anki's Sweethearts Line available exclusively at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is Isac With Skateboard. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI Cardstock, and colored it with copics.

I used this week's sketch over at Mojo Monday for my layout. I created my card base (which measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2) out of SU's Brilliant Blue. I layered Real Red on top of that followed by my design paper from last year's Summer Stack from DCWV. I attached Real Red ribbon from SU and some blue rhinestones. The sentiment is from a set called Tiny Words from Hot off the Press. This is an awesome sentiment set, it is so versatile. Susana has this set at 50% off right now, so make sure to check that out. I used my SU 1" circle punch to cut out the sentiment, mounted it onto a 1 1/4" circle cut from another SU punch, then mounted it to the card base with dimensionals. Finally, I mounted my image to my SU cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. I usually steer clear of boy cards because I'm just not very good at them, but I'm pleased with how this one turned out. What do you think?

Hugs, Christine :)
