Cake and Mojo

Well I offered you cakes so here is the first one!

Unusually I got to let my Mojo out to play on a Monday. However there was just time for a quick card before heading off to my home from home – just a relatively short trip this week but I will miss being home. I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch on
Julee’s Poetic Artistry Blog. You can find some lovely cards on her Blog.

This card was made using an image from one of my favourite stamp collections – Stamping Bella. I am sure Bella bakes a great cake. The Image was stamped onto cream cardstock with purple Stazon ink. I then stamped it again onto a scrap of the pink cardstock and cut out the apron. The rest of the image was coloured with my Polychrome pencils from Faber Castell and then blended with Sandor. This image was mounted onto a lilac panel which I had run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. This was then mounted onto cream before being added to the pink card with the two lilac panels behind. Three small holes were punched in the left hand side and lined with cream.

I hope you enjoy it.

Now who would like a slice of cake?

Great card. I love how the white mat around the image panel really draws your eye into the center of the card. Thanks for playing! :)
