Mojo Monday Contest 72

More snow than ever today! This is the fourth day in a row that the boys haven't got to school/college, however DH managed to follow the gritter up the hill out of the village and get to work. So why was it that yesterday, the only day he didn't get into work, was the day my first Sugar Nellie order arrived? You see, I was only going to get a couple of the Leanne Ellis images, but they kept going in and out ofstock and it was better value to get the set ;).

I've fallen for the Leanne Ellis designs in a big way and also the Gorjuss Girls, but the GGs will have to wait for another month :). I made a start watercolouring a couple of the images and used True Love for Mojo Monday's sketch. She's watercoloured with Art Quest watercolours and mounted onto Bazzil textured card. The sentiment is the centre of a circle stamp that would have been too big for the card, it's mounted on navy card, both circles cut with the Nestabilities.
I've used a stamp-edged cutter blade for the base of the two navy layers, as I don't have a punch to do this. The background paper is from a Graphicus Guild pack, the contrast strip is Glimmer Misted. I didn't want to card to get any busier, and detract from the image, so I just used a peel-off strip on top of the contrast strip, and made the flower from a scrap of Glimmer Misted paper and some of the mauve Bazzil card.
Love these images, they are not exactly cute, there is just a little edginess there, at least on the three framed ones... Can't wait to play with the others now...
Hmm... it's great to live within walking distance of my office, but just think how much crafting I could get done if I had a "snow day" :)
