Vintage Mojo

This card is for Mojo Monday #19 at Poetic Artistry. I was inspired by my Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper. The flower is from Time Well Spent. The large flower was stamped in chocolate chip on some rose red. I then used my versamark pad & some crystal embossing powder to give it some shine. Afterwards, I cut down the line of each petal & tulled them back with a pencil. The next flower was stamped in chocolate on ruby red. The paper was a bit bright so I sponged it with ruby red ink to darken it a bit. This one I tulled up. The final flower was chocolate chip on very vanilla. I sponged it with ruby red & cut down a few of the petals & bent them up. The build a brads were made with some more stella ruby paper. The panel that the flower is on is actually the large & small leaf from the Time Well Spent set stamped on very vanilla multiple times & sponged with old olive & chocolate chip. It almost looks like Basic Grey paper!!
