Starring...

This color...soon to be released...


Makes a great statement on a card!


 
See that wonderful texture under the bow of this Christmas card made by CardMonkey (Ellen) for posting today?  Ellen layered two pieces of Mama's Mesh -- one in a lipstick red and the other in a seafoam green. 

Now don't go looking for these colors in the Lovebug Creations online store -- they're home-colored!  Yes, the Mesh is SO versatile that you can color it up in any alcohol-based markers (Ellen used Copics) to match your card.

Ellen said: "I started with Mama's Mesh in white, cutting the pieces I wanted to color to size. I put a piece of scratch paper underneath the Mesh, and then, using the wide end of the Copic, I colored in circles over the mesh until the color was saturated."

Ellen also shows us on her blog (http://cardmonkeyspaperjungle.com) where she derived her inspiration for this card. 



"Magazines are my favorite source of inspiration," Ellen said. "And I'm disappointed that two of the industry's leaders are shutting down their hard-copy of their magazines."
