Smokin Mojo!

What a smoldering sketch from mojo Monday this week! I had so much fun!

Some of the pieces were precut from my embossing class this past Friday night. The center panel uses the reinker float technique on shimmer white paper. I used my large circle and scalloped circle dies to make the panel on the right hand side.

I used my new favorite color combo, bordering blue, razzleberry and white. It's so pretty for this time of year.

The bottom panel was embossed with the polka dot embossing folder from the big shot.

For the ribbon, I slid the Untied, overlapped, ribbon under my brad...poked a hole in the layers underneath (except the base layer) and ran my brad through. This makes the brad hold the ribbon really tightly, and makes it easy to adjust the "loops" of my bow.

Not bad for a knot girl! :) I hope you're having a wonderful Monday..
Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton

Beautiful! Is the reinker technique the same as the stone technique? Your "new" favorite color combination may find a home in my stash. Again, Awesome job!
