MOJO Monday/ MOJO#306 "Shabby Card"

Wow I haven't played along in a long while so I decided last night while gazing upon Marion Smith's new digital printables "Scarlet" which you can find at
a card was a must to create and little shabby and pink!
So along with the digital prints and a Die~Namites Die "Bamboo Sticks" (
I started adding gesso/stucco with mask design...Distressing all the edges and white washing all the give a softness to the papers for the card.
I didn't have a scallop punch available big enough for what I needed I turned to my CTMH Cricut Art Philosopy and Artiste Cartridges...added a pretty little Prima flower and leaves....sprayed a fine mist of Perfect Pearls Mists: blue patina!!!

Here are some close ups of the digital papers and die-bamboo sticks....just love all the texture!

Thanks for stopping in today be sure to stop over to the MoJo Monday Blog at
and swing by the website for the newest Marion Smith Designs at and the blog at

Happy Creating!
