Mojo Monday Week 102 Card

This is my Mojo Monday submission. I saw the large circle on the sketch, and immediately thought of this stamp set. I've traditionally done brighter colors with this set, but I really like how the muted colors ended up looking. Here is the sketch that I was working off of:
This is my take on the sketch:I used the Good Friends stamp set on this one. Again, the stamp-a-ma-jig came in very helpful to place the beak and legs of the bird. I used Always Artichoke and Sage Shadow ink on the bird image, and Always Artichoke ink on the other two images. For paper, I used Sage Shadow, Sahara Sand, and Always Artichoke cardstock and To the Nines DSP. My favorite part of the card was the flower on the left. I used brads in place of the starts that were on the stamped image. The picture doesn't show this card as well as I had hoped - the brads really add a punch to this card.

I used the circle cutter to cut the larger circles - worked like a charm!!

Welcome to my site!!

I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
