The sketch for Mojo Monday this week was very inspiring for me. Here is the sketch...
...and here is my card...
Stamps: Tilda With Cat, Tilda With Puppy, Whimsical Words (SU!), Flourish stamps (MS)
Paper: Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl, Textured Cardstock (DCWV)
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Flowers and Leaves (Prima's and Wild Orchid), Branch Punch (MS), Rhinestones, Round Tab Punch, Scallop Trim Border (SU!), Spellbinders Label
The sketch inspired me to hinge the front of the card with the round tab punch. I wanted my images to correspond, so I chose Tilda with Cat and Tilda with Puppy.
I am continuing to refine my style with distress inks. I can't get over the effect of blending colors. I just wish the photographs did justice to what the images are like in person.
I wanted to use Becca's technique for bow tying. I struggled a bit because the bow kept covering my image. I finally ended up with a bow tie.
I can't make a card without some kind of flower bouquet. Gotta love those flowers.
So, do you ever finish a card, and think, "Why is this not quite right?" I felt that way with this card. I like it, but I think I would have liked the bow a little higher. What do you think? I am always trying to improve, so your comments are always appreciated.
Well, I hope you have a great weekend!
