Mojo23

This is for the mojo 23 contest at Poetic Artisty. It took me several days to decide which stamp set to use for the sentiment. This one is from Stampin up's Happy Harmony set from last years sell-a-bration. Here are some details for the card: First I used acrylic paint left over from my daughter's art work to paint on white cardstock. I used a technique the kids learned recently and first wet the card stock then stroked red paint across the paper. It did curl up when it dried, but I was able to flatten in out before attaching it to the card stock. I matted this piece onto Pink passion card stock. The next layer is pretty in pink matted on pink passion. The ribbon is light pink and red, tied onto a dark pink swirl clip from TAC. The dp is from my scrap pile ( Dick Blick) The red circle was cut with nestibilites and the sentiment on the circle is also from some misc. dp in my scrap pile. The sentiment was stamped first with versamark and then cameo coral over that. The Happiness Always is pink passion ink and the edges of the sentiment are lightly sponged with cameo coral. This was a fun card to create and I'm already thinking about some more square cards I could work on.
