Manly Mojo/ Mojo Monday #255
Mojo Monday sketch needed to go manly for me. I found inspiration in an unexpected place--- Floral District designer paper. With so many blossoms, I didn't think I could find a design that work work for my manly theme. However, one of the "B" sides worked just great. All it needed was a little bit of soft suede sponged around the edges. It's hard to believe I used to dislike this color. Now I use it ALL the time! I went with the distressed look on my stamped piece. My distressing tool took care of the edges & my color spritzer added just enough to my repeated stamps. I even think the accidental stamping of the edge of this stamp adds to the distressed look. That's why I didn't redo it. I am the Accidental Stamper after all. My very favorite part of this card is the combo of the embossed scallops & the pierced ones along the side. It was such a fun alternative to a punched piece of paper. The card didn't really need another layer & this way I could include that element more subtly (and use even more toys!).
