Mojo Monday 181 Chic Boutique

Stampin up mojo monday chic boutique  1
A beautiful design, like this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO181), can take on a modern vibe with a monochromatic color palette.  I paired Concord Crush and Perfect Plum, per the recommendation of my Stampin' Up! Color Coach.  It's such a handy tool to get the mojo flowing.  See my Color Coach video.

  • Stampin up mojo monday chic boutique merci I stamped the cage a second time (Concord Crush ink on Perfect Plum card stock) and paper pieced the bird on his little swing.
  • A Concord Crush Glimmer Brad introduces a pop of glam to the project.
  • I'm a big fan of the Stampin' Up! Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The patterns are an ideal size (scale) for card making and offer coordinating patterns in each Stampin' Up! color, by color collection.  They blend together effortlessly–especially classy for monochromatic looks.
