trying to find my mojo.

good evening all.well i am still trying to find my mojo so i have had a play with my distress inks tonight and some new stamps i have had from sue at crafty urchins.i normally find if i have a break from my normal style then my mojo will come back.heres hoping anyway.lol.
oh and my accident prone streak seems to be in full swing.i tend to knock myself about a lot at work but i went to get in the bath tonight and my left knee is a lovely shade of purple.its just one big bruise and i can`t even remember knocking it.oops.
so here are my 2 just playing cards for tonight.
products used on this one are a new artemio stamp set,no name on the packaging to say what the set is called though.all images are from the set.distress inks broken china,milled lavender,dusty concorde,chipped sapphire.a bit of paper ripping.script paper from stash and lilac and black card.hero arts sentiment.
close up of the images.i used a white gel pen to add highlights.

and a sideways.


no2.this is my fav.i have used a new create a scene stamp by creative expressions which is a sheena douglas design.all night media sentiment.black and white card.distress inks.mustard seed,wild honey,spiced marmalade,rusty hinge.simples.xx



and a sideways.
thanks so much for popping by and i hope you like my change from the norm.lol
enjoy the rest ofyour evening.
ttfn
luv coops.xxxx

Hi Coops

I really don't think your mojo has gone anywhere - these creations are awesome.

Struggling to choose my fav!

My, those are fab cards, so elegant! I like them both in different ways: the first is subtle, and the second is so cheerful! Good Job! (Which is my daughter's current favourite expression, and I find myself using it a lot, because it's such a compliment!)

Oh wow Coops, if this is what you do without your mojo then I am waiting with bated breath to see what you come up with when it comes back! They are both so beautiful :o)
