A Challenge from Sarah

The lovely Sarah of Youtube: 3dogsand2kids and The Handmade Card Blog and I have been having a bit of a crafting mojoless slump lately, it is taking heaven and earth to get either of us motivated or inspired, so when we were on skype one night I said lets get our mojo motivated and I challenge you to do the Mojo Monday challenge, and film it and enter it before it ends. Sarah said fine so long as you do it too! So naturally being the competitive person I am could not say no so I accepted!

After a couple of days milling about what to do I decided on my brand spanking new WPlus9 stamp of the cute little birdie and I wanted to add some resin paper in I had made a while ago actually and use up some of the scraps of paper that are in my now rather large scraps of paper box, its literally busting open! I am really not sure who made the papers, maybe 7gypsies, they were loose in my box without a covering sheet or packaging.

I stamped the image in versafine, coloured with Brusho's and inked everything with Memento Luxe peanut brittle ink. I used a reference image of a Coal Tit found randomly on a google image search, THIS is the particular one I used.

I am so pleased with how this turned out and it has really sparked my imagination, I think my mojo is returning! I haven't used patterned paper for the longest time, I think I am regaining my love for it.

I would love to hear what you think of my part of the challenge and hope you go visit the lovely Sarah to see hers. Her youtube channel and her blog are well worth following!

Thanks for visiting

Great video. Love the colors you used. Can I get the Brusho products shipped to the US? Are those little shaker containers you used the same ones listed in the store? Thanks!

Great video, Clare. Love how you colored the image. I am curious about the Brusho products. Can they be shipped to the US? Are the little shaker containers used in the video the same ones listed in the store? Thanks for sharing your talent and these new products.

Dunno why I cant reply directly MA! I dont see why you cant get them in the USA, they are very inexpensive at just over £1 a colour. I have the full set! The company that makes them is, dont forget the U in coloUr when you search since you spell it wrong in the USA :P
