Moosing You

For a brighter picture, try my gallery at Splitcoast here. I don't know why there is such a difference, but there seems to be!!
It's Mojo contest time again! This week I chose to combine my Mojo sketch with the Clear Dollar Stamp Weekend Color Challenge colors - Olive, Bashful Blue and Kraft (actually it's sand... but I don't have any - so Kraft it is!!).

I paper pieced my little Moose from the CDS February Stamp Set of the Month and set him on a little grassy knoll - which is a Memory Box stamp that I found once upon a time. To recreate the squares behind the circle in the sketch I ended up stitching and sponging. I tried every color cardstock under the sun for those squares, but they just didn't do it. The stitching was understated enough not to overpower my sad little moose. I stamped some stars (SU) with white ink on my kraft cardstock, stitched and distressed the edges, and tied a cute little tag to my ribbon to finish it off.

Here's a close up so you can see him all popped up...


Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll play along in both the challenges! They're so much fun!!!
