Mojo Monday 454-I Think You're Quite Cool

I Think You're Quite Cool card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Concord & 9th

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  The sketch's large round panel screamed "sun" to me, so I ran with it and made a summery design using stamps from Concord and 9th.

My sun was made with a pinking edged yellow circle topped with a striped yellow patterned paper circle.  I set the round panel at the upper left corner of a light blue dotted patterned paper panel and trimmed the circle so its edges were flush with the panel's edges.  I replaced the sketch's rectangular panel with a popsicle! To get a traditional bomb pop-like look, I inked the top of the solid stamp with red ink and the bottom with blue, leaving the center uninked.  After cutting out the stamped image with the matching die, I stamped the "I think you're quite cool" sentiment on it in black ink.  I wanted to get an icy look, so I brushed over the popsicle with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen.  It really does have a sparkly, icy look IRL!  I added the popsicle stick, then used foam tape to adhere the image to the panel over a silver fishtail flag strip.  A few white glitter enamel dot "drips" completed the design.  I adhered the finished panel to a contrasting red card base.

Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for more inspiration from the design team and to add your own take on this week's sketch!  You can also find all of the Mojo Makers at their blogs here:
