In my own little world??

I have been inflicted with severe "mojo-less-ness", and am struggling to shake myself out of it. I finished a card today,  bits of it have been hanging around on my desk for days. I don't know what's the matter with me but I hope I snap out of it soon as I have several, near completion, pieces that I just need to get on with.
  I recently bought a couple of the new spring 2013 Stampotique stamps and the one that I have inked up here is "Mothloved". The sentiment is from Linda Masons Doo Lally Pip stamp set "Don't be afraid" The sentiment I have used just about sums me up at the moment!!

The background I completed before my mojo went missing. Using manilla cardstock I just kept mopping up ink left over on my craft mat. I then used modelling paste through a chevron stencil having added light green paint to colour it. Once this was dry I added some stamping on the chevrons and added some stamped arrows, washi tape and paint rings using a bottle cap to finish things off. These were then all added to a card blank which I had added similar matching bits and some machine stitching.

Over at Simon Says stamp and Show this week the challenge is "inspired by" and I have to say I get great inspiration using stampotique stamps from both Carol fox and France Papillon (click the links for their blogs). They both have inspired me to take a much more mixed media approach when working with these stamps.

Hopefully I will be back soon with my much missed Mojo in its rightful place.

  3. So happy that I've come from your newer post, so that I know you're feeling slightly less mojo-less now - and I have to say it's not showing on this card either - fabulous!
