I love you Mojo Mum


I have had a lovely Sunday watching my friend Trish's daughter acting in the local theatre company's plays today. She's gonna be a star that girl! Two plays in a row today - Cinderella & Aristocats. She made a scrumptious little mousey in the second one, very cute.

Anyway, when I got home I checked my diary and realised that Girl World would be sorely neglected until at least Easter! Too much work happening darn it! 
And so I spent the rest of the afternoon gettin my mojo on.....and here is the result.....

and here is the sketch for Mojo Monday #186....

 That's my Mum sorted for Mothers day, the next will be my Mother in Law no doubt :)

I have used the SU Fifth Avenue Floral rose and used a water-colour ink technique on an embossed image that I then cut out and layered up with some spellbinder circles & scallops. I used SU "Glorius Green" and "Ballet Blue" to colour with. The Manhattan Rose embossing folder was used on the white card at the top, and a Kaiser "I love you" stamped in black for the sentiment. MUM is stuck down in stickers. The floral paper was from a Paper Stack purchased at Big W. and there is some lovely green twine at the top with white ribbon tied in a bow to finish.

The water colour ink technique involved embossing the image on water colour paper. Spray the image with water until it pools inside the embossed areas. Take up a little ink on a brush and just touch the pool of water and watch the ink spread. Mix two colours together for a nice effect. Let it dry. Simple.
