MOJO #103 Corn and Leaves



I've got the day off from work today (yippee), so I actually had time to play in the Mojo Monday challenge. I haven't used this image from Harvest Home (Stampin Up), so it was time to get it inky. :-)

After I picked the designer paper and cardstock colors, then I was able to color my image. I used my aquapainter and reinkers, and then after it dried I sponged very lightly around the edges.

The sentiment is from the retired set With Gratitude (Stampin Up). I looked high and low for a current sentiment that would work, but I just couldn't find anything. So I turned to my beloved retired sets and this one is perfect.

Happy Labor Day!

Stamps: Harvest Home, With Gratitude
Ink: Suede, Ruby Red, Mustard, Saffron, Timber Brown stazon
CS: Suede, Ruby Red, watercolor paper, Autumn Traditions dsp
Other: Suede ribbon, aquapainter, sponge
