Colour Inspiration 14 - mojo!

Well, here I am again with another & very different attempt at colour challenge 14. Kristina said to go for a "high contrast & bold creation", so I sat down tonight & had another go &....this is it!This is quite a few steps out of my comfort zone but it was really fun to do. Who knew I would enjoy black & grey (although thank goodness for the ruby red!).

Mojo is a favourite word of mine in relation to my papercrafting inspiration (& sometimes the lack of it!), so I thought it was perfect for my bold creation. Co-credit goes to my gorgeous hubby, as I came up with using mojo (more on that later) & he suggested the square layout with a letter in each square. Go Damo!

It's a little hard to see in my midnight photo, but the letters are embossed in black & silver (grey!) & raised on dimensionals. All 4 squares are also raised off the ruby red piece on dimensionals. The black, grey & white card is all textured cardstock too (yum!)

This card is dedicated to my dear dear friend Ngaire in London! Missing you heaps buddy & hope your stamping stuff arrives soon! xxx

Supplies:

Stamps: Big Deal alphabet, Big Pieces
Card: Basic black, basic gray & whisper white textured cardstock, ruby red, river , rock card
Ink: versamark, river rock
Accessories, ruby red brad (Earth Elements®), silver brad, black gingham ribbon
Tools: 1 3/8 inch circle punch, large star punch, star punch
