Moroccan Cheer & Mojo Monday (#81)...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

It's Mojo Monday time again! I've been wanting to use a new Basic Grey stamp set called Morocco, and I thought this sketch would be the perfect opportunity. I love the Eastern influence of the images, especially the elephant. Using a Big Shot, I first embossed the Fiskars 'Leaves' onto cardstock. I then used a VersaMark pen to draw over the raised pattern (as well as the feather), and gold embossing powder really brought out a glamorous glow. The 'flower' was created using the ever-useful Emboss Resist technique.

Wow - that's a completely unique take on the sketch - I hadn't seen the moroccan set from Basic Grey!

Oh gosh! What a wonderful card! Truly amazing what you created.
P.S., thanks for your comment on my card, and the stamp set used was Penny Black clear acrylic called "Hugs".
