Another Mojo Monday...Finished on Wednesday!

I find that when I play along with the weekly Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, I kind of force myself to get out my comfort zone and make myself create something.  Maybe it is because the sketch gives me a starting point, something that I can look at and see what stamp set would work with the LO of the card.  Maybe it's because I tend to go back to sketch's that I am familiar with, but then become bored with if I have used them too many times.  I don't know.  But what I DO know, is it helps me to start creating...

The stamp set I chose is Close to my Heart's Stamp of the Month "Sunshine Birdies".  I just LOVE the sweet little birdies in this set, not to mention the sayings that come with it are cheery!!  Although, I did not have enough room on this card to use the sentiments that came with the set.  I had to borrow the "thank you" from a set that had tiny sentiments that would fit in the space I had available.


Lately, I am finding that I am liking the crispness of using just cardstock along with an embossing folder for dimension.  The flowers are the only thing on this card that I used Patterned paper for.  I used Watercolor Pencil with a Blending Pen to color the birdie in.  After I colored him in, I used Canary Ink to darken him up a it around the edges as I found him to be a bit lighter than what I was going for when I colored him in.
