The Great Mojo Comeback: Final Week


So I'm a day late posting my cards for this week's The Great Mojo Comeback over at A Blog Named Hero's Flickr Group. I cannot believe it's been five weeks already! Whew, time sure did fly by!

This week, which is the final week, we decided to give you a choice :) You can choose to do the sketch

which is based on the lovely Joy Taylor's card here. I always love Joy's creations, such a talented lady and super sweet to boot!

or you can choose the colors
Bahama Blue, Bright Purple, and Lime Green.

Since I've been picking the colors all along I decided to make a card with them. 
Super simple card, but I love it! I used seedless preserves, salty ocean, and crushed olive to create a gradient banner. Then I just stamped my background stamp in black. I wanted the banner to be a bit more defined so I added to strips of black on the sides. The butterfly was stamped on that lovely purple paper then trimmed out. To add some detail I colored using a white gel pen. Finally, I covered the purple parts in stardust stickles :) Isn't that shine just gorgeous?! 

I DID do a card based on the sketch as well so I'll be back to share that tomorrow, bring shades you'll need them hehe! I hope you visit us over at the flickr group to play along :) There is a prize winner plus a Top 8 . . ..it could be you, but only if you play!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I was surprised that you stamped the black over the distressed colors. I thought you heat embossed and did the resist trick. That black came out just perfect! LOVE that butterfly - especially the white and the stickles.

  2. Love this, Kelly! Beautiful colors and shading!

  3. This is amazing, Kelly! I LOVE the bold contrast of the colors against the white, and the black just takes it over the top. GORGEOUS butterfly, too. You have done a lot of work with these challenges, and it really shows... I bow to you, girl! :) Thank you for being s inspiring!

  4. This is so gorgeous Kelly! I love how you incorporated those colours and that beautiful butterfly :)
