Soft Color Bird

I put my own spin on Mojo Monday sketch 471 here. I used a mirror image of the sketch and used leaves in the corner instead of a banner. 
The paper is from the Graphic 45 collection called "Baby to Bride."

I really have to apologize for the poor photo. I need a new lightbox the photos are just not looking good without one. 

The color choices come from the MFT Color Challenge, but it's difficult to see them. Really need a new lightbox. 

Stamp: Close to my Heart. 
Ink: Colorbox Gold Brocade
Embellishments: Spellbinders die

This card is also part of the Kraftin Kimmie challenge #355 "lots of layers." 
Because the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is week is "anything goes," I'm entering it over there too. 

Couture Shoes

This card uses a fairly literal interpretation of Mojo Monday sketch 471
The paper is from the Graphic 45 collection called "Couture."I love this paper so much that I have been hording it for a couple years because I didn't dare cut into it. But it's time to live a little and enjoy using it. 

Shoe stamp: Close to my Heart. 
Ink: Hero Arts ombré Grey to Black
Embellishments: Graphic 45 Couture

Monster Birthday Card

For this card I pulled out some paper I've had around for a few years. It's the DCWV Monsters and Robots paper. I was looking at the Your Next Stamp Color Challenge and the Monster's and Robots paper fit the color scheme perfectly.

My homemade light box was destroyed when I moved, so the lighting on this is not good at all. Sorry for that. The stamp is from Paper Smooches and the red ink is Hero Arts Shadow Ink.

I used the Viva La Verve sketch from this month for the design. If you're curious, the biggest circle has a 2" diameter mat and a 1 3/4" diameter circle for the image. The smaller circles have a 1 3/4" diameter mat and a 1 1/2" circle for the patterned paper.

October Color Challenge Journal Page

I used color inspiration from My Favorite Things Color Challenge to create my latest journal page for October.

I didn't have the MFT inks they specified but found some Stampin' Up colors that came pretty close.

I used stamps from the Distressed Diamond set from My Favorite Things to add diamonds around the page borders. The sentiment is from a MFT Die-namics set called "Four Point Frame"

October Bullet Journal

I have been using a bullet journal technique to plan my days and keep track of tasks. My first pages were very practical and plain. After a few tries I started getting a bit more creative. These pictures show a little bit of the work in progress.

This page was made using the photo inspiration from the October Waffle Flower Challenge.

The colors may look a little different. That is only due to lighting changes. 

I am also entering this in the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. It fits the mood of the board perfectly.
