My Mojo is Back !


I think it took me longer to decide what stamp set to use than to actually put this card together ! I was choosing so carefully because this card is for Julee's mojo challenge and I REALLY want to win one of he awesome stamps sets from her store, Verve Visual ! The paper is Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding, which she sells in her store. The stamp is retired S-U and the little page pebbles I got from Ellen Hutson's store. The snow flakes stamped on the Soft Sky paper are embossed with Iridescent ice e.p.
Since I don't have craft soft sky ink I dipped my stamp first in Versamark and then in the Soft Sky ink. This allows you to emboss the image just as if you used craft ink or Versamark. I don't think that it hurts your stamp pad to do this, but I clean my stamp after each time I stamp so i'm not going back into the Versamark with Soft Sky ink on my stamp. Hope this makes sense, have any questions just ask, have a great night !
