Rolling "IN" the Mojo

Okay, so I'm not *rolling* in the mojo, but I did use a couple of IN colors to do Julee's Mojo Monday challenge, which was a sketch challenge this week. And yeah, I needed a title.

The bottom layer is Soft Sky, embossed with a Cuttlebug Textile folder, and rubbed with Pink Grapefruit Versamagic ink (a perfect match for Groovy Guava). The Guava layer is stamped with Papertrey's Beautiful Blooms. Solid leaves in Cloud White and the dotted outline leaves in Pink Grapefruit. The flowers are done in black Stazon and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I gave each a light shadow with my aquapainter and soft sky ink, then pierced in the stems. I mixed together a few of the words from Beautiful Blooms for the sentiment (Jumbo Java) and added the tiny flower (Pink Grapefruit with Sakura glitter pen center) Layer that circle over a large Cuttlebug flower die cut. I finished by gluing on a few little rhinestones to balance out the design. You can see I took the color scheme from the pictured ribbon, which I ended up not even using.

Recipe:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms
Paper: papertrey ink white, Stampin' Up! soft sky, groovy guava and chocolate chip
Ink: SU soft sky, versamagic dew drop inks in pink grapefruit, jumbo java and cloud white
Other: cuttlebug textile embossing folder and flower die cut, sakura glitter pen, paper piercer, rhinestones, prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, aquapainter

Well, I think this card is oozing mojo. Love the colors, the cuttlebug background and the whimsical placement of the flowers. Now I'm kicking myself for not ordering this set.
