Feel Better Soon

I've gotta tell you, on days when you have NO MOJO, the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast is a good way to get going!

Today's featured stamper is sumtoy . The card from her gallery that I chose to case is HERE . I used the same stamp set, which is the Dr. Pea-Nut clear stamp set from Our Craft Lounge. I changed the color scheme and parts of the layout.

I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with detail clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow Markers and a damp paint brush.

The border on the top and bottom of the card front was made with a Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch. The designer paper is from the Basic Grey Ambrosia paper pad.

I added Mini Flower Rhinestones on the panel to the right of the stamped image using my Quickie Glue Pen for adhesive. I hope that didn't make this card too feminine. I was going my best to keep it gender neutral.

The sentiment on the inside is also from the Dr. Pea-Nut stamp set. It was cut and embossed using my Labels Four Nestabilities .

The cardstock is Desert Coral Prismatics medium and Gray Prismatics .

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend. As for me...I'm off to try to find Mo & Jo. They are obviously missing.

Thanks for stopping by!

Michelle, your card is adorable! It would cheer uop even the most morose of patients. I love the gentle blush in his cheeks and inside his ears. Looks to me like your MoJo isn't too far behind.

So awesome Michelle! I just love you coloring! Oh, here's an idea, since you now carry those tombow markers, how about a watercoloring tutorial with them!? I cannot water color for the life of me...and yours is ALWays so gorgeous!
