Real Men Mojo


I had plans to use this stamp set on another sketch challenge BUT after coloring in the image late one night and leaving my card (all cut out but not adhered together) on my desk (along with some slightly expensive markers) I came upstairs in the morning to find my 2 1/2 year old son had "helped" me by coloring over my ENTIRE image (and part of my desk) with a RED marker...EEEK! So, sorry to say, I was a bit bummed by my slight misfortune of forgetting to close the baby gate (which only keeps him out 1/2 of the time) and decided to wait until the steam had settled from my insides before trying again! :)

I started off with this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch #156

and added a bit of color from the Play Date Cafe Challenge
PDCC47

After flipping the sketch on it's side, I used Whisper White as my base and cut strips of 1" Basic Black, Real Red & Garden Green for my background. The Real Red got eaten on one side with the Scallop Border Punch. I added Basic Black ribbon and three Black Brads before popping up the image off of my card with dimensionals, I just LOVE those things (which is most likely why I have 3 packages as back up)!!

It came out GREAT! I think you totally should add a photo of the little dude's "art", as well. It would complete the mental picture one may get from reading your post. I still remember your face after that one...3 hours LATER! HaHa!
