Sunday Stamper - Week 197 - Paper Roses... Plus Winner

Gooooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy Mothering Sunday to you all. Many thank you's for your lushiously misty entries for last weeks theme... I have a winner to announce for my tag giveaway... more of that in mo. The theme this week is based on the song that has been going around and around and around in my head for about 376 years since I heard it on the Radio the other day (quite) So, the theme is... to use Paper Roses &/or Paper Flowers. The flowers can be any kind of paper (including the Grunge variety too) To join in is simples; make a little something, add in the theme and some stamping, pop back here and leave me a comment along with a link to the place you are showing your entry and I can hop over to visit you. If you don't have a blog/Picassa/Web-hosting-thingywotsit, you can also enter by bobbing an email over to me or on Facebook. The theme will remain open until 21:00 Saturday 24th March 2012.

So. The winner of my tag for last weeks entry is... chosen randomly by Mr. and he said that it was Lucky #13... which tallies with the comment left by Red Kitty. Congrats and please can you email me your addy and I will pop the tag into the post for you :O))

Right... my entry. Basically, Mr Mojo has decided to naff orf on his Jollies again and has left me sitting here with absolutely no idea what to do for today's theme. I even spent an hour moving stuff about the Room of Stash thinking that something would come to me.... wrrrrrong! SO, I did what I always do when I am Mojo-less, I make paper flowers. This one on my tag is made using Tattered Florals biggest flower, cut three times from basic cream cardstock then coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick Distress Stain and then overstamped with Vermillion Archival. I then made all the layers and then dipped each one into a Melt Pot full of clear UTEE and layered them up... the hot UTEE acts as a glue so they are all stuck together nicely. The leaves are Tattered Leaves, coloured with Crushed Olive Stain and overstamped with Olive Archival and crumpled up, dipped into the UTEE and then glued into place. Because the flower is a bit... ahem... bright, I decided to keep the background of the tag very muted... using Old Paper, Frayed Burlap and Walnut Stain DI's to colour it... stamping the script with Frayed Burlap, the harlequin with Coffee Archival and the lightly spritzing Heirloom Gold PP Mists over the top. Some Idea-ology to add a bit more decoration (yep, never tooooo much decoration lol) and that was my tag done.

That's all from me for today... thanks ever so much for all your lovely kind emails and messages... I really do appreciate your kindness and support... am hoping that I might get chance to find the old rascal Mojo and get some stuff made this week... and actually get back to blogging daily... in the meantime though I will say... as ever... thanks for looking and... TTFN!

With all that you have happening Hels, No wonder Monseiur MoJo has slipped off to a quiet corner. Bit of R&R I suspect.
Your tag is just lovely.
Will try to play this week!
Be well, be happy!

Hi Hels, it is hard to see that Mr Mojo has gone walk-about when you look at this wonderful creation - it is beautiful - you are the queen of flowers. My 'accidental' entry can be found at
Hope you like it and hope you feel much better soon.

Joanne said...

Your gorgeous tag might get me started today because I am just too happy about Tim's class tomorrow and yours next Sat/Sun. Have you stopped giggling yet???
Hugs Joanne xxx

Didn't sleep a great deal last night but I did get to play.

Did you find Mr Mojo? And seriosuly chastise him?
We have just spent a frantic hour looking for our dog only to find her having a panic attack and hiding under a chair! Tis one of those days.

Trust your are a little better.
