Mojos 50 and 51

I completely forgot to post my Mojo card for Julee's Mojo Monday challenge last week and only just got around to doing this week's. Work's been manic the first week back and today was the only chance I've had all week to do anything fun!!


Anyways... this was the sketch challenge for Mojo 50:



and this is my card:




I got this cute little angel from Butterfly Kisses at the Simply Yours Craft Show at the end of August. It's actually a back and front stamp set in which you get the front and the back of the main character. This is so you can make suspension type cards with them. I got a snowman set for my Christmas cards too, but that's staying in the box for a while yet. I still think it's too early for me to start making my Christmas cards. Their website is not yet up and running but I keep checking just in case. I love these sets and have to have more!!


I stamped my little angel twice and cut her wings from the second layer before mounting her on foam pads. I moved the sentiment to the middle of the centre panel as it looked odd being so big on one side. The centre panel is also a stamp from the set - I just twisted and turned it each time to get a different swirly bit.


Recipe


Stamps - Star Angel Around-2-it set from Butterfly Kisses


Paper - White card blank from Craft Central, Lilac pearlescent paper, yellow and white cs from lss


Inks - Versafine Onyx Black, Copic Ciao Markers in Y02 Canary Yellow, R20 Blush, E51 Milky White, BV02 Prune and Y15 Cadmium Yellow


Accessories - Clear EP, Sticky Ribbon from Anita's, Circle and Oval Nestabilities, D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug EF




And this is the sketch for Mojo51:





and this is my card:





I could not decide on what to put in the centre square, especially as it was at an angle, so I chose to have Tilda sitting on the edge instead. This is some more DP from my card magazine freebies pile. I would not normally matt and layer using white - I tend to use a contrasting colour, but I thought this card had enough contrast. My collection of Copic Ciaos is slowly growing but I just did not have a green to match the DP. However Tilda's dress does not look as minty as this irl. It's a softer green than the photo...oh well.
