Mojo Muse

I've used Mojo Monday 300 sketch as a base for my card and taken my inspiration for the colours & textures on my card from the Muse Card Club Challenge #24, Monday Muse: Laurie Willison.

Laurie's colour scheme: green, black and beige/kraft. I scoured my digi papers until I found just the right tones to reflect the Muse card. I inked my stamps simultaneously with black & brown inks and distressed my papers with Antique Linen & Walnut Stain.

Laurie's textures: buttons, thread, woodgrain. I combined two of these by using a button with a woodgrain appearance. I've used my thread is au naturel and died with the brown & black inks.

Laurie's sentiment: hello. My sentiment is in the same vein: thinking of you.
