Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning everyone...well in view of the fact that Mr Mojo has left the building and gone AWOL again.....I abandoned all thoughts of work and decided to have a little play with some brand new Stampin Up goodies that arrived at the cubbyhole a few weeks ago......and a chance to join in one of my favourite challenges
As it's the first challenge of the month over at Daring Cardmakers ....it's time for the birthstone of the month challenge and for June that is.....
PEARL
symbolising loyalty, faithfulness and friendship
and is also associated with modesty, chastity and purity




Papers: Stampin Up...Cottage Wall Collection
Images: Stampin Up...Vintage Vogue
Ink Pads: Stampin Up.... Rich Razzleberry...Old Olive
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Thinking of You
Pearls....Hobby House

The background paper was created using the stamp set...with first and second impression stamping and overlaying the different stamps...this is one of my favourite techniques and stems back to when I first started stamping and there certainly wasn't the fabulous selection of papers that we all take for granted now but once again....if I keep this up I am never ever going to make a dent in the huge stash of 12 x 12's that has taken up residence in the cubbyhole.
Well off to have a bit of a tidy up in the cubbyhole all ready for WOYWW....wouldn't do to have you thinking for even a minute that I was in the least bit messy......catch up with you all tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

I think Mr Mojo hasn't left the building at all, he's hiding somewhere in your cubbyhole and comes out when needed.
But looks to me like you don't need any extra help your card is absolutly beautiful. I love it to bits, was humming and ahhing over that stamp set, maybe this months purchase.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Kath

I really, really love this card the colours together are gorgeous. I've not ever done much stamping, but when I see cards like yours it inspires me and I like the look of the first and second impression effect that you've done on the background - really wonderful and to think you've created this when Mr Mojo has gone AWOL is amazing too!
