Hello friends!  Today I am finally playing along in a MOJO challenge during the challenge week - usually I'm so behind I never get to actually play along with everyone.  This is my take on MOJO276 using Pure Innocence - Read All About It.

I love her big poofy chair and thought it would look great with some paper pieced "fabric".  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card Stock and Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye.  After cutting her out, I colored her with Copic markers and then added shadow with the markers on the patterned paper.  I created the wood floor and wallpaper with papers from the Howdy Doody paper pack and then added little strip of Whip Cream Card Stock along the seam for that floor molding.  If only installing hard wood floors were that easy in my house, haha!   I added the sentiment on the smallest Fishtail Flags Layers Die-namics and added it under a Sno Cone Ribbon.

I stamped the sentiment for the inside of my card in Black Licorice Ink and added some stitching along the borders of the paper.

Here are the MFT products I used today, which are waiting for you in the MFT Boutique:

  1. Very pretty! I LOVE your mix of colours.

  2. Very cute! I have been wondering if you can use the Black Licorice ink with Copics. I'm going to guess no because you posted about using Tuxedo Black.

  3. Love the paper pieced chair and love your color combo! Beautiful!

  4. Beautiful card, love the colours and how cute is that image?!
