Mojo Thursday (MOJO179)

Mojo Monday is Mojo Thursday for me, but it doesn't matter! As long as I post my design within the week I'm okay. Sometimes I run behind schedule and I feel bad that I can't participate, not necessarily because it's a contest but because I love to participate and share my work with others.
I hope you like my design today. To combine the colors I used the Color useful!
NOTE: To make the flower, I punched four flowers with the 5 Petal Flower Punch: two in Rose Red and two in Designers Series Paper. I used the technique of breaking the fiber of the paper and pulling apart the paper, creating two flowers out of one. Click here to read my explanation of the technique (I did NOT wet these flowers). Finally, I crunched out the flowers and glued the petals together with the Mini Glue Dots.
To give the embossed paper greater depth, I inked the embossing folder with Old Olive and then put in the cardstock and embossed. This makes the dented area darker than the prominent one, thus creating the illusion of greater depth.
