MOJO Monday 350 ---Another look at the Wetlands set

For my last challenge I used the Wetlands set and kept it simple.  For this challenge, I'm revisiting the Wetlands set and am also using the same colours.  Even the centre window is the same as is the Burlap Ribbon that I used.  Despite all this "sameness" the result is very, very different.  The key is the sketch.

For the sides, I decided to use the Banner framelits but cut them in half and mounted each half on a side.  For my base, I decided to use Lost Lagoon and then layered it with Naturals White stamped with the Gorgeous Grunge set and Baked Brown Sugar ink.  

I didn't want such a large piece of Burlap Ribbon and therefore cut it in half lengthwise.  I frayed it right up to the stitching.  The lengths of twine that I removed when fraying, I used to make a "flower" and attached it with an Antique Brad.

For more samples of cards using this sketch, check out the Mojo Monday Blog.


  1. LOVE this beach-themed card, Heidi! The burlap flower is genius and I love the watercolor/splatter details! Thanks again for letting me know the name of the DP I used on my card. Stay tuned and you'll see more from the same pack on my next mojo card! :-)

    1. Thanks so much, Wanda. I've been playing a lot lately with the Burlap Ribbon. Once you begin realizing it's "okay" to cut it and fray it, a whole new world opens up.
