Tea Time Mojo

Hello Everyone!

Here is my card for yesterday's Mojo Monday Challenge. I opted to do the square card rather than the circle card. The image I used is the Rose Teapot digital image from the Priscilla Styles Store. I printed the teapot on Vanilla card stock. Normally, I reach for my Copics when going to color something; but this time I decided to use watercolor crayons and pencils. When I got done with the teapot, it was a bit too purple! I took an eraser and went over the image and that took away a bit of the color, and resulted in a bit of a softer image. The card base is Elegant Eggplant, with a strip of scalloped Artichoke at the bottom. The other colors I used in the card are Mellow Moss, Sahara Sand and a bit of a lighter purple that I found in my scraps.
In trying to stay true to my own challenge to only participate in four challenges a day, here are the four for this card.

Sketch: Mojo Monday
Embellishment: PollyCraft (no designer paper)
Misc: Paper Rock Scissors, (use two types of ribbon. I used ribbon and some purple twine)
Squigglefly: use your favorite embellishment (mine are buttons!)

That's all for today. Have a great day and hopefully you'll find some time to be creative.
