Mojo Monday 412

Hi everyone I don't know about you but I'm ready for Autumn and cooler weather. I decided to make an Autumn card. Here is the Mojo Monday sketch.
Here is my take on the challenge:
The background I made using tissue wrapping paper. I colored the tissue wrapping paper with my air brush and Spectrum Noir markers. Then I took a stencil and used a Sharpie.  The circle I covered with mica fragments. The narrow band is from a scrap.  The yellow piece is a scrap of  water color paper which I brushed water color paint on and then sprinkled coarse sea salt which I had ground up in a coffee grinder.. The salt did not totally dissolve and left a nice texture. The leaf was a leftover from a previous project and although it was a little different shape and size I used Brilliance red gold ink with Hero Arts Bold Maple stamp. I then did a little bit of hand trimming. After adhering the leaf to the panel I used circle paperclips to attach the panel to the orange strip. I have these in both copper and in colors. It is fun to once in awhile use paperclips. The phrase was printed with my Brother's label maker.

There you have it my Mojo Monday card and the paperclip challenge. Do you ever use paperclips in your projects?

I am so excited as I received word that I'll be mailed stamps next week for the design team. I'm itching to get my hands on these stamps. Alas it looks like the official announcement has been delayed. :-(

Weather has cooled down to the 90's but by Saturday is suppose to cool down to the 70's. Yipee! My poor boys have missed our long walks. Even in the evenings it has been late before it has cooled down.

Today was the beginning of Stampotique's  new challenge. The theme is my favorite as it is anything goes. You can check it out by clicking on the button on the left hand side.

That's all for now folks. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
