And Now For Something Completely Different…

March 9, 2009 at 10:14 am 10 comments

When I look at Donna’s cards, I suffer from a severe case of “elegance envy!” As you’re about to see, when I look at the same sketch challenge, my brain tends to go off on a completely different tangent!

Here then, is my version of Mojo Monday – Week 77:

Actually, this is a variation on the card I made for my teenaged son’s last birthday. Although he makes an effort to be appreciative of my artistic efforts, his sports-obsessed mind really doesn’t care so I need to have a “hook” to get his attention! (This is why I need to blog – I just don’t have a wide enough audience at home)!

The shark is an older stamp from Stamp Oasis and I heat embossed him in black on watercolour paper, then watercoloured him with Tombow Markers and a waterbrush. When he was dry, I trimmed him out and slathered him with waterfall blue and frosted lace stickles for lots of shine. Instead of the scalloped border called for in the sketch, I turned the scallop element inward to create “bite” marks out of my sentiment. I thought it was kind of fun!
