I can't believe I finally managed to do another MOJO Monday card sketch. With as busy as life gets for this working Mom, this seems to happen once in a blue moon. I do want to take the time to do sketch and color challenges more frequently. They're really fun. Here's the card I came up with the MOJO238 sketch.
A lot was involved in this card. I was determined to make a masculine card and use embossed metal. I picked up some Quickutz metal sheets that have an adhesive layer on the back. I ran it through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and inked it up using Tim Holtz/Ranger Alcohol Inks and Versa Magic Liquid Chalk. I rubbed some of the extra off of the raised portion using some Alcohol Blending Solution (Tim Holtz/Ranger product) and a simple white eraser.
The alternating squares (or circles rather) were made using several punches and Stampin' Up Cardstock. I used Creative Memories star punches, a Creative Memories circle punch, and a 1 1/8" EK Success circle punch. I added a little subtle shading to the yellow Cajun Craze (retired SU color) stars and the Always Artichoke green circles using Stampin' Up dye ink and those wonderful artist sponges that Stampin' Up also sells.
The accent image is stamped using this great vintage motorcycle stamp by Bombshell Stamps and colored with Copics. I stamped using Tuxedo Black Mememto Ink. The orange shading on the circle is done with Dusty Durango SU dye ink (retired color). I added additional circles of Night of Navy cardstock and a silver circle cut out of the same metal I used for the squares. The tags were cut using an original Sizzix die. The brad is by Karen Foster. The ribbon, card base, and greeting stamps are all Stampin' Up.
