I love having time to do the Mojo Monday challenge at my LSS.  Sometimes I go for long stretches where I just don’t have the time but last night I made myself sit down and work on the challenge (and I made another colossal mess in my craft room).

I tried watercolouring paper last weekend but didn’t like the results so I decided to go with a watercoloured image instead.  I used markers to colour my stamps and then I misted them with water before pressing them into watercolour paper.  I also used a patterned paper that has a bit of a watercolour effect (IMO).

I’m fairly happy with the results but have a couple of blotchy flowers where I tried not to saturate the stamps too much.  Hopefully, this just adds charm to my card!

For the washi portion of the challenge, I used washi tape (how clever am I?) on the bottom corner of the card.  I didn’t really have any matching colours in my stash (I have about 30 rolls of washi but they’re mostly bright colours) but found a roll with some neutral portions and found some pink paper tape I picked up at the Target Dollar spot a couple of months ago that is close enough to the right hue of pink.

For the word portion of the challenge, I stamped a word background on the patterned paper, there are words on the neutral washi and I made a little tag with the word “Mom”.  I think I’ve got the word part covered!

Here’s the card:

The pinks are a little off in the picture but I think this will work as my entry for the challenge.  Stick a fork in me, I’m done!
