Tuesday Mojo

Hello everyone!! I did some serious stamping the last couple of days....I'm on a creative roll!!! I had some catching up to do and some new projects to craft room looks like a tornado hit it!!!
I made this today for the Color Challenge on Splitcoast. Betty challenged us to use Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral, Vanilla, and Always Artichoke was optional.
The Clear Dollar Stamps Rock On guitar images were stamped twice with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. One set was cutout and popped up with dimensionals. Shadow guitars were stamped with Cameo Coral in the background for some added depth and the edges were sponged with Cameo Coral. The background layers are pieces of scrap dp...I sewed around the burgundy layer, added the ribbon, flourish, and sentiment.
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps Rock On
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Cameo Coral, Designer Paper, Vanilla
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Cameo Coral
Accessories: Flourish Punch, Ribbon, Dimensionals, Sewing Machine, SU Oval Punches

I finally got caught up on my Double Dog Dare Challenges...the coffin is Julia's (artystamper)challenge from last week and this week Joanne (sleepyinseattle) sent us some fun Halloween goodies (thanks, Joanne!!!) to use for Joanne's DDC challenge to make a Halloween Card. The template for the coffin can be found in the DDC thread in the challenge forum message #40. Be sure to add DDC to the keywords section when you upload so we can find your project!!!
Stamps: none
Paper: White, Pumpkin Pie, Black, SU dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Die Cuts, Ribbon, Preprinted Frame, SU Oval Punches, Googlie Eyes

The October Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge was hosted by Jodi (Kharmagirl)....she challenged us to make a card/project with paper piecing, and in Christmas or Fall Colors. Well, last night when I read the challenge, I failed to read that the project needed to be done in fall or Christmas colors. But project has green and purple, which are Halloween colors and blue, which is a snowflake color sooooo...maybe this will pass!!!!
The sweet little Sarah Kay image reminds me of Holly Hobbies without the hat!! She was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and paper pieced with Basic Grey's Wisteria. The hair, skin, and the highchair were colored with Copics. The background papers were also from the Wisteria 6x6 pad and ribbon, button, prima, and twine finished it off.
This reminds me of my DD when she was a little girl...she loved her babies and used to love Holly Hobbies so I took a little ride down memory lane with this challenge!!!
Stamps: Sarah Kay
Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria, White, Prism Iced Mint
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Ribbon, Button, Twine, Flower, Spellbinders Frame die, Top Note, Dimensionals
