How about some Mojo on Monday!

It's been so long since I have had time to play along with Julee and the girls on the mojo monday blog. Every week there is a new sketch for you to play with, and you can post your creations on line and then link back so people can find you! SO FUN!!!

I took the sketch this week and turned it, so now, my card looks backwards but the sketch was just rotated 90 degrees to accomodate that crown stamp that I have NEVER used before. This stamp set has been sitting lonely on my shelf for so long.

it all started with the Designer series paper. I cut the paper following the sketch and thought that it looked very girly. When i went searching for a stamp for the sketch, this one popped out at me. I used blender pens to add some red to my crown. For the most part, i just used the ink from the stamped image to add color. I also mixed some dazzling diamonds with crystal effects and painted it on in certain places on the card. You can really see it too good in the photo, but this one is VERY sparkly in real life. I removed some crystal brads from their casing and used my crystal effects mixure as glue to attach the floating bling. Under the three in a row above the crown, I used some cut out black circles. Again the photo didnt capture it, but there is a 1/16" border around those bling in real life. just a hairline to see the border, the same as the 1/16" border around some of my layers. This was a really fun sketch and I was so happy to play along. This could be a new tradition!

Love the way you flipped the sketch up a bit and the way you did your ribbon.
