Mojo Monday Challenge 401

Hi everyone can you believe we are already in the middle of another week. It is still hot so I've been playing in my playroom. Lol! It probably would have been better if I was cleaning and organizing it but we won't tell anyone.

I have for you today another card for the Mojo Monday challenge. Here is the sketch:
I made a horizontal card instead of a vertical. Alas it must be the heat frying my brain because I forgot to cut down the scrap of pulled print before adhering the ribbon and adhering it to the card. So my card layout is a little different since it was difficult enough to originally cut the canvas board.
 I read on a blog about cutting canvas board out using steel rule dies. Well while my large flower cut out I could not get the smaller flower to cut all the way through even running it through my machine twice. Since the canvas board did not cut through all the way I salvaged it cutting off the part where I had cut out a larger flower using the same die. I painted the canvas with light purple and aqua metallic acrylic paints. Then used a dark purple acrylic paint with a stencil.. The panel on the right is leftover from the card in the previous post. I thought of using washi tape but decided since I don't use ribbon much and have a large assortment to go ahead with ribbon.

The sentiment is from Verve's Moments Remembered set. I thought the glitter tissue paper the set was wrapped in was perfect to stamp on. I used Jet Black StazOn ink. I love stamping on tissue paper the challenge sometimes though is to adhere it without having the tissue wrinkle. I found a glue stick works best for adhering tissue paper..

I used a Spellbinder die for my metal circle. Alas it did not cut all the way through so I had to cut it out by hand. I used Vintaj swirl embossing plate. The small flower did cut all the way through. I used the Divine Swirl embossing folder to emboss the flower. Both pieces of Tim Holtz metal are colored with StazOn ink.  I used matte StazOn GlazOn on both metal pieces. Then on the flower used my purple ink and then used vintage StazOn GlazOn. When using more than one color of ink or alcohol markers on metal you need to use the GlazOn in between colors.Otherwise your color will wipe off.  The gem was in my stash and already that color. My poor airbrush is going to start feeling neglected so I guess I'm going to have to use it soon in another project. ;-)

Time to go clean and organize once again my playroom. Unless of course I get distracted by things such as the bag full of Washi tape I bought at Dollar Tree a month ago and haven't used yet. Much less put away. Of course I know none of you get distracted cleaning and organizing.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again! Oh and be sure to check out the Mojo Monday Challenge blog and even joining in the fun the more the merrier.
