Webster’s Pages Mojo Monday Card

I love Mojo Monday! You have to enter to try and win a FREE stamp set worth $24 too! Not too shabby of a prize! I won once before with this card and I didn’t enter again for a while because I wasn’t sure if I was allowed even though I couldn’t find a rule. Some contests do not allow winners to win again for three months. No point in entering if you can’t win right? So here goes with Mojo Monday #98.

(Can you tell I want to try staging more interestingly?) The DP base and the scalloped edge are both Webster’s Pages journaling cards. I just LOVE these! They are decorated on one side and the websters post cardother side is lined and decorated. The scalloped edge was printed only, I cut it out from a larger card (not pre-cut). On the right side, the stamp, Post Card wording, stripes and the flourish-y were part of the journaling card-YEAH!!

The sentiment at the bottom was on the back of the scalloped journaling card. These cards are just so beautiful, anyone could make a gorgeous card with them. The heart frame used to be websters post card closeup silver, it is a Memory Makers tag maker frame; I coloured it with my Pilot gold paint pen. Both the photo corners and the frame were too bright for the rest of the card so I darkened them with a dark brown Copic so they fit better with the rest of the card.

The ribbon bow is made with the 2” Bow Easy, two-three looped silk ribbon bows layered on each other with a SU! pretties kit pearl on top. All of the layers are sponged with cocoa ink. The ink bottle and pen nib were stamped on Kraft CS, cut out and coloured with markers, cocoa for the bottle and Copic c-1 for the nib; both had clear Spica pen over them. For the bottle I hoped it might look more like glass without having to get out the glaze and for the nib, more metallic. The music is a real vintage music sheet and I used those old-fashioned, lick-to-stick (yucky tasting) photo corners.

Enjoy, Rebecca
