Mood Challenge 9 – Jot Magazine

9 Summer Gelato

I love the Summer Gelato colours for this Mood Challenge Board 9.

I thought I would try and get some ideas for Christmas cards this year and experiment early.  I wanted something different for this Christmas.

Last year, I made a mix of cards using Lime Tart collections and reused/recycled previous years Christmas cards.

I thought I would try and incorporate the ideas from this Mood Challenge from Jot Magazine

Looking at all the other creative entrants, I have not tried stencilling, stitching and cutting out small journal cards.  So here I am giving it a go!

The bird is cut from a previous years Christmas card as it had the blues I needed for the challenge 🙂

I hand stitched using a glitter type thread. Couldn’t bother getting the sewing machine out as I was watching movie “Unknown” which starred Liam Neeson and didn’t want to miss too much of the movie while I was trying to create this card 😉

The feathers and ribbon were from a stash I had stored years ago!

The flower brad is from Kaisercraft.

The rest is from Lime Tart .  Even the lime green packaging I used in the card from Lime Tart!

The stencilling I used Distress Ink and inked a paint brush and gave it a stippling effect.

The bottom of the card, I used the small dauber sponge.

I’m still learning how to create a layout to focus on a certain part of the card.

Enjoy and thanks for looking!
