Mojo Monday meets Lili of the Valley

This is a card made with a neglected stamp set, I refuse to beat myself up about my huge craft stash as a January ritual, but I *do* intend to use and enjoy what I have :). I've used a stamp from Tall Trees, an Elusive Images that called my name but then sat mute in its box for some time...

I've used the Mojo Monday sketch; the image and the sentiment (also Elusive Images) are stamped in black Versafine onto glossy card with Kaleidoscope ink brayered onto it. I have re-done both the sentiment and the image as I was surprised to find that my Aleen's tacky clear glue had some kind of weird bleaching effect onto the ink... There were a few blobs on the image that looked bad, but just look at the sentiment!
I don't use DS tape very much now as I found it isn't very long lasting, but the brayered glossy definitely needs something other than the glue. It might be an interesting effect for another project though...

This is also an entry for the Lili of the Vallege Challenge this week - a Thank You card

DP is Basic Grey Indian Summer, I've used a Cuttlebug folder with leaves, highlighted with a bit of chalk ink, as well as a Martha Stewart punch. The paper is 6x6" and not big enough for the card; I was able to cut it and hide the join under the central border.


  1. Stunning card, love the image, papers and layout in fact just love it, thanks for joining LOTV this week
    Hugs Jacqui x

  2. I have many that call to me too then when they get here they sit uninked for a ridiculous amount of time. I wish Elusive would start selling in the states because I totally love their stamps. This is beautiful!
