Mojo Monday 68 - CONTEST

Happy Monday to you, I hope you have had a nice weekend. Well, I hope your mojo is flowing because today starts a new weekly sktetch from Julee Tilman and it is a contest week with the prize being your choice of any Verve stamp set $24 or less. Sound good? All you have to do is make a project using this week's sketch and link your creation on the mojo Monday blog. Yes, you read that correctly- mojo Monday BLOG! Now mojo Monday has it's very own blog and I am thrilled to bring to you my very first sample as a part of the mojo maker team. Have a look at the sketch and my card:

So, what do you think- isn't the sketch fabulous? Julee is terrific at making sketches and this one is no exception. I really enjoyed it and hope you will decide to play along with us. Now for the card deets. The image was colored with prismapencils and blended with gamsol and stumps. I added crystal effects to the heart between the owls. I stamped the sentiment and sponged around it using my oval nestie die as a stencil. For the pink heart brads I used tweezers and stamped them onto a versamark pad first then into iridescent ice embossing powder and heated with a heat gun so that they would now be shimmer brads.

stamps- high hopes love birds, owl love you
CS- pretty in pink, chocolate chip, basic grey bittersweet dp, white
accessories- prismapencils, crystal effects, making memories brads, 1/2" circle punch, labels one nestabilies, piercabilities border, iridescent ice ep, taffeta ribbon, oval nestabilities

To see the rest of the mojo makers' samples and see the deets on this week's challenge be sure to visit the mojo Monday blog.

Thanks for coming by and have a wonderful day!
