I'm making on of my New Year's Resolutions for 2011 to complete the Mojo Monday sketch challenge each week. I've been following and haphazardly completing the challenges here and there in 2010. I love the sketches, and the artwork is outstanding, and I want to be sure I'm stretching my artistic side this year! Check out their blog at http://mojomonday.blogspot.com/ .
I distressed everything with black ink, and my fingertips may be slightly distressed for a week now! I also used the new pre-pleated twill ribbons at the bottom of the card, and popped the black background up with foam tape to allow for the ribbon to peek out from beneath.
I made a puddle pad using some baby wipes on a plate and inked it with Vineyard Berry and Black re-inkers for my focal butterfly. I stamped her onto the backside of the Alphabet B&T Paper, trimmed her out and swiped her edges with black ink as well. I also stamped just the antennae onto the top right square of my background so I didn't have to fussy cut them. The butterfly is adhere just on the body, with a bit of foam tape under the wings to make sure they stay popped out. Finally, you know I practically can't finish a project without adding something sparkly, so I busted out my Martha Stewart Chunky clear glitter and applied that to my butterfly's body with Liquid Glass.
