Colored Mojo ....

or how I combined Color Inspiration and Mojo Monday and had fun doing it!


This is my first time participating in KwernerDesign's Color Inspiration Challenge but I have been stalking her blog for a long time. (Hi Kristina!) This week's color challenge was to combine SU's Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White, Ruby Red, and River Rock. I knew I wanted to use them for this week's Mojo Monday challenge and thought the colors would work beautifully with the new Verve set "Asian Flair". The sentiment is from a little Studio G clear stamp set that I picked up for $1.00 last weekend. Gotta love that! The other thing you've gotta love are these gorgeous self adhesive pearls from Kaisercraft, they come in the most beautiful colors. I had to pick up one in every shade.

I just noticed that there is no patterned paper on this card!! I think that is a first in months. I always seem to pick out a paper first when I'm making a card but I really like the simplicity of this card so I may have to forgo the PP more often.




It's all about the details:
Card stock: Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper: OMG None!
Stamps: Verve, Studio G
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU River Rock
Accessories: Foam Squares, Ribbon, Kaisercraft Pearls
Tools: Scor-pal, SU punches
