Monday Mojo 168

I needed some mojo in a bad way so where else better to go than the Monday Mojo sketch...


Then I looked around on the web and found an interesting, out of my comfort zone sort of color combo (burgandy, gray, black and light green) and this is what I came up with....

Here again, I colored some Etsy purchased wrinkle ribbon with a Copic. I laugh now because I haven't used any of the ribbon I purchased, in the original color! Every piece I have used has been Copically altered! LOL!  (If that is not a word...it is now!)

And don't laugh at this one...I was really close to my Chi...flat iron...and didn't want to turn on the regular iron! My Chi just flattened out the seam binding perfectly! If you heat it up and flatten it out it gets so nice and flat and makes a fabulous bow! (Although the bow on this card is not ironed...just the piece in the back!)

Yes I used Argyle again! Sometimes when you pull out a stamp don't you want to use it over and over? Maybe I will use it again tomorrow! ;)

Thanks for stopping! Have a great day!

  2. Amazing card as always, Laurie! I LOVE that tip of using your straightener... I will most definitely use that in the future to get the creases out of ribbon. Thanks for the idea!

  16. This is so pretty! I love that you 'alter' your wrinkled ribbon too! I've been known to do that and finally just broke down and bought a spool of white seam binding so I don't have to bother with covering up another color. ;)
