Getting a Mojo Fix

Recently, in my busy schedule, I have found myself only making and posting a single crafty item a week (normally a card) and it's almost always for a colour challenge.

Trouble is, I've not been playing and challenging myself with this wonderfully diverse aspect of design. It's been months since I've sat down and had to pull colours out for myself and I'm missing it. So, for a change, I thought I'd have a go at a sketch challenge. And here is the result. A card for this week's Monday Mojo.

I knew that no matter what else went onto the card, it had to include an element from my newest Spellbinders set Fancy Tags Two. It's by far, my all time favourite die set. There are three tag shapes in the pack and I love all of them. So beautiful in their ornate decoration.

Ahhhh, feels good to have flexed that creative muscle again. I now feel an urge to draw or sketch something. It seems that whichever creative area of my life is sensing a current drought, it sends me an itch and tells me to scratch it. And I've never been one to ignore a nagging sensation in my craw.

Fab card, Paul - love all the trimmings. I bought those nesties too - not had a play yet though. x

Oh Paul - such temptation - love those nesties. Might just have to buy them - not seen them before (which will make you smile).
Fab card again - love the rich colours you have used and the white nestie gives it that pizzazz! Fab!
