Mojo Monday’s 142 Contest


I haven’t been making cards for very long… but I do have a passion for the working with my hands πŸ™‚Β  and lately I’ve been a little obsessed with challenges because well..they challenge me and inspire me to be better.Β  Plus I really want to WIN ONE! LOL and be proud of what I do πŸ™‚Β  Not that I’m not proud of what I do already… it’ll just reinstate that I’m good enough to do this and that try to earn a living out of it….

ok enough self pity for one night! LOLΒ  Here’s Mojo Monday’s Contest Sketch:

Here’s my card (with the thought that I had to make a birthday card for a lady in her 60’s who likes flowers and antiques – hence vintage! I LOVE)

Isn’t it Lovely? πŸ™‚Β  Actually…. I thought it could’ve used a bit more color after I put all the pieces together…but hey…vintage/antiques don’t have bold bright colors…it’s faded and worn out..right? LOL

notice anything shimmery??? take a closer look…

oooooooit’s gold smooch spritz! I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

this took awhile…….the stamp is from element of style from the summer mini, and then i colored it with my blender pen…then i wanted the shiny lacquered look, so i used crystal effects!Β  The first layer of crystal effect wasn’t very smooth…..:(Β  so i added more on top of it! and I put it in front of my little heater downstairs so that it’d dry! lol it turned out SO GOOD!!!

so shiny………ooooooooOOOooOOooOOoOoO πŸ˜€Β  sorry….like many other girls i get easily distracted with shiny and sparkly things πŸ˜€

many layers makes a card fantastic πŸ™‚

and I left the inside blank so they could write a message πŸ™‚

Materials I used:

Card Stock: perfect plum, natural ivory, chocolate chip, basic black, bella blue dsp (it’s retiring!!! they better come up with some good to replace it!)

Ink Pad: perfect plum, pale plum, cameo pink, ruby red, soft suede, close to cocoa, old olive

Stamp set: en francis, vintage vogue, elements of style, heard from the heart
