MM414 and SIP 13

I started off Mojo Monday 414 (MM414) and Stamp Ink Paper 13 (SIP13) with one card in mind and ended up with another one!  Funny how that works.  I created this:Oh Hey MM414 SIP13

Can you believe this card started off with butterflies?  LOL.  Anyway here are the challenges:



I enjoy having both of these sites to offer challenges out each week.  They definitely get me thinking and creating.  I saw the stamp sets for CTMH’s Constant Campaign and thought “let’s use one of these”.Hello Life Stamp ImagesSo I created my backgrounds by randomly stamping different stamps from the set to create the “birthday” card feel.  I distressed the edges with a sponge and the ink pad.Oh Hey MM414 SIP13 b

Did my layering.  When looking at the pennant, decided it needed more character and distressed it with a sanding block.

Then I realized the butterfly look was out and thought let’s use watercolor to continue the more distressed, lighter look of the card.  I contemplated getting out the watercolor paints and then decided to use a quick and easy method of doing water color.

You can get a few pieces of paper watercolored this way for backgrounds.  It’s fast and easy.  You can even do large, 12×12″ of paper for your layouts this way.  MM414 SIP 12 Oh Hey wm d

After my paper dried, I stamped my sentiment and created some faux stitching with my journal pen.

Oh Hey MM414 SIP13 aLove the soft look/background for the sentiment.  Sets of the black ink and sentiment well.  Be sure to check out September Giveaways at the $50.00 and $100 purchase levels!!
