Mojo Monday Sketch #109

Here's a card I made for the Mojo Monday Sketch #109.  Below is the sketch we had to work with and you can check out all the details at the Mojo Monday Sketch Blog

And here's my creation:

I've picked out another colour combo that I wouldn't normally use, but it worked well.
I've started off with a base card in Tempting Turquoise, then added pieces of Riding Hood Red and Regal Rose as per the sketch.  Along the bottom of the Red cardstock, I've stamped the flourish image in Versamark.
For the main image, I've used the stamp set Friends 24-7 and I've gone with the bird image.  First I've stamped in onto some Whisper White cardstock in Sahara Sand ink.  Then on another piece of white cardstock, I've inked up the bird with Turquiose and Red.  I did this with a baby-wipe, allowing the ink to soak into the baby-wipe, then dabbing it onto the stamp.  Once stamped onto the white cardstock, it gives a nice watercolour effect.  The bird image has been cut out and mounted onto the card layout. I've matted this onto some Turquoise cardstock and a small piece of Designer Series Patterned Paper in the Riding Hood Red.  Here is a closer look at the bird:

To finish off the card as per the sketch, I've stamped up a part of the sentiment and used the circle punches and scallop punch to create the centre embellisment.  I've also added a small button with some twine.  Lastly, I've used some wide Regal Rose ribbon .

Well, this was a fun sketch and I would love to use it again, maybe for some scrapbooking.
