Mojo Monday Week 74

Hi there everyone, welcome to another mojo Monday and terrific sketch from Julee. Here is my sample and the sketch for you.





Well, I have to start out by telling you that this card seriously took me forever!!! This was one of my five longest cards to make I think. I had a mishap and my copic marker started oozing and ink was everywhere so I had to start over. Then I thought I would try to do something a little new and do the paper tole technique with more layers than I normally would. The cutting out was a little long and tedious and too time consuming for this super slow cardmaker. Anyway, after all the time I took making it, I can't say that I am thrilled with it as the idea I had in my head did not come out on the paper the way I envisioned it. Did you ever have that happen and if so isn't it aggravating LOL? Enough chatter, on with the details. I stamped the bird and balloons 4 times and colored them with copics and then cut them out and layered the pieces with pop dots. I used angel wings shimmerz on the balloons, hat, and wing of the bird. I also used coal shimmerz to paint the brads and the black mattes. I have to admit that took a while to paint all the edges. I added tiny rhinestones to accent the tail and feet.





Supplies:
stamps- Verve birthday surprise
CS- silver swirls lustre, soft sky dp, white, black
accessories- coal and angel wings shimmerz, rhinestones, copics (BG10, BG72, BG75 (this is the one that exploded)), double sided satin ribbon, paper piercer, black brads, circle punch, pop dots


Don't forget to stop by the mojo Monday blog and check out the terrific samples from the mojo makers.

Hope you all have a wonderful day! I need to cook and clean now since the pastor and his wife are coming over my house for dinner tonight and hopefully I can get all the ink off of my fingers LOL. I made sauce and meatballs last week so we are having lasagna- yum!
