Saturday, July 30, 2011


  Happy Saturday!  I so need to finish cleaning my house and wash and fold some more clothes, but why work when I can craft?   These things I pondered, but only briefly.  I decided I really needed to get my Mojo on and play in my crafty space for a few first, then clean!      

For today's card I am using Mojo Sketch 201!   While in my craftroom, I did straighten up a bit and while doing so I found my stash of Graphic 45 Romantique papers that I had put in a basket and totally forgotten about.  I took a look and thought I could use these for this fabulous sketch.   I really love the vintage pink damask pattern piece.  I really did not want to cover it up totally with the horizontal bottom panel in the sketch, so I went with a cuttlebugged textured vellum bottom which I vintaged up a bit with some chamomille and chai inks.  The vellum gives a subtle covering, but does not show up at all hardly in my picture.    I stitched around the frame and left the  vellum as a pocket for my background picture panel.  I distressed these panels and try to make them look like old pictures.   I am using Verve's  One Person stamp set.    I used the Charming Oval dies for my tag.  I finished with some lace, seam binding bow,black flourished gems, gold pearls, and ornate gold button from my stash! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
