It's Not All Black and White

Mojo 89

Today's card is done with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I used some older Basic Grey paper (Romani) and the new Verve set, Up, Up and Away. The piercing in the corner is done with an Ornare piercing template. FYI-it helps to set the template with a few straight pins, so it doesn't slide around while you're doing all that piercing. I paper pieced the balloon and treetop. The little bit of "trim" sticking out, is a strip of orange paper in the Romani collection that I stamped with a trim piece from the Up, Up and Away set. The sentiment is from So Happy. Stamps- Up, Up and Away, So Happy (Verve)
Paper- white, water color, SU red, Basic Grey Romani
Ink- black VersaFine, SU! choc chip, cocoa, bashful blue, caramel
Accessories- ornare template, piercer, SU brads, nesties, white gel pen, water brush, dimensionals

This is gorgeous Bethany! All that piercing is wonderful! Thanks for the tip on the straight pins....I've been using a low tack tape but pins would be much easier ;)
