With love

You know how some days, Mr Mojo seems to be elsewhere?  
I think today is one of those days!

At Stampotique this week, the theme is
Polka Dots
so "Ellie" thought she would help me out while Mr Mojo is AWOL.

I started by playing around with some Ken Oliver Color Burst powder paints in 'Alizarin Crimson'.  A quick spritz with water then left to dry before stamping "Ellie" with 'Jet Black' Archival Ink.

"Ellie" is fussy cut before her trunk, party hat and toenails were decorated with shimmery gel pens in various colours.

I found some polka dot background paper, added some dotty washi tape for "Ellie" to stand on, along with the same washi tape to replace a ribbon finish.  With a gold pen, I ran a line around the edges of the tag for definition and finished it off 'with love'.

Mr Mojo is probably enjoying the beautiful sunshine outside today.  Perhaps he'll be ready to play again once the sun starts to set and the evening grows cold.

Stampotique - #255 Polka Dots
Pixies Crafty Workshop - #243 Snippets Playground

Happy Crafting!


  1. Hi Helen! What a cute tag - I love the elephant with the lovely hat, and also how it matches the dotty paper and washi tape too.

    I think this is your first trip to the Snippets Playground, so welcome! If you want to be in the prize draw do add a link to the Playground in your post and also leave me a comment saying you're playing for the prize. I ask folk to do that so I can be sure they really want whatever the weekly prize is. Hope you came back and play again soon - we all have snippets :)
