Recycling the Mojo

Good Afternoon Everyone!

Sorry the post is a bit late, I was waiting this morning to see if Julee would post a Mojo Monday sketch; but she doesn't seem to have. Perhaps she is on vacation. Anyhow I decided to look through some of her past sketches and see if there was one that I had not done that I could use. I found this one and I thought it would work well for the stamp set that I wanted to use which is "Puns from the Past." This is a relatively new set and I really like it. The only problem with it is that the images are small and skinny, so sometimes it's hard to design a whole card around them. I also wanted to try a different color combination, which I think came together quite well also. I started with a Chocolate Chip base and added a layer of Groovy Guava, which I stamped with "Print Pattern" Background stamp. Then I put the Certainly Celery piece on top of that. That piece was stamped with the swirls from the retired set "Basic Backgrounds." Next came the Saffron piece and the two pieces of ribbon. I layered the image piece on another piece of Celery and then Chocolate and then finally Groovy Guava, which I paper pierced at the top and bottom. As I said, before, the images are small in that set, so I think that they need a lot of layering behind them. I made some photo corners from Saffron Paper (note to self: get photo corner punch!) and attached them with two antique copper brads in each one. Finally, I added the "Thinking of You" Sentiment and completed the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by everyone. Have a great day!
