“Hello” Mojo Monday Challenge

Wow, seems like I just finished last week’s sketch and here I am with another one. When I saw this sketch, I wanted to challenge myself and do something besides a regular A2 sized card. I did decided to go with the standard 4 ¼” square so it could still fit in a regular envelope. I also flipped the sketch counter-clockwise so that it would look a little bit different.

I happened to have a 4 ¼” x 8 ½” piece of brown cardstock already on my desk that was scored so I knew I could start with it as my base. I also had the scrap of teal cardstock on my desk that I then cut down to 4 1/8” square. I liked the bright colors so I chose to go with the My Minds Eye Lime Twist scraps that I had in my paper pad to enhance them. The green polka dots were cut at 4” square literally was almost all that I had left of that sheet, so another scrap was used up!

I inked the edges of the green polka dot paper with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I also pulled out some matching scraps from my paper pad where I cut down the flowers to be 1 ½” x 4 ½” and the woodgrain to ½” x 4 ½”. The flowers were inked in Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and the Woodgrain in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

I wanted to use up some more scraps so I went through with my 1” circle punch and punched from various different prints. I love how this paper pad is double sided so I get a lot of different prints in a small pack. I inked the edges of the circles with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink and the one woodgrain with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I stacked three different circles in varying patterns and I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the center of the layered circles to insert the shimmer brad. Once I had the brad in, I used my scissors to cut at an angle through all three layers to then form them into flowers. I used Glossy Accents to adhere them down to the card.

I used a gifted sentiment stamp that said Hello and stamped it on in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to the small oval cut with the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I then chose my Copic BG07 to color in the image as it matched along with the colors of the card. Once the coloring was dry, I sprayed the oval with Pearl Glimmer Mist. Love the shimmer and shine! Again, I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes for the mini brads on the oval. I adhered this to the card with foam tape right on the inside of the brads.

Don’t have a use for this card as of yet so it may end up in my Etsy shop. I love how it came together and definitely think that I will use this sketch again for future cards. Got to use a LOT of scraps on this one which made me feel good as well!
