Elegant Blessings

Hello and happy Monday to you all! Welcome to another mojo Monday sketch. Here is the sketch and my sample:

I stamped the cross with chocolate ink onto poison ivory cardstock. This cardstock along with the rest of the iridescent line (including my favorite cryogen white) is on sale for 40% off at paper temptress through the end of March. I then used my RV11 copic marker to color in the cross and sponged all the edges of my ivory cardstock in pink. Pearls were added to accent the beautiful cross image.

I hope you will stop by the Mojo Monday blog to see the info for this week's sketch and to see the mojolicious creations that the rest of the mojo makers have for you.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Elegant Blessings
CS- poison ivory, choc chip, berry bliss dp
accessories- RV11 copic, pearls, sweet blush satin ribbon, corner rounder punch, paper piercer

My second card also uses the beautiful newly released Elegant Blessings from Sweet N Sassy stamps too. This card is for the Monday SNSS DT challenge and I used the SNSS sketch for the week on Papercraft Planet. The challenge this week is an acetate and tissue challenge brought to us by Chris Dickinson. Below is the sketch and my sample:

I stamped the cross with black staz-on onto acetate. I flipped the acetate over and covered it with crystal effects. Next I added my baja reinker to the cross openings and saffron to the rest. I must admit it was extremely tricky trying to get the baja not to bleed outside the lines and I did get a little bleeding but not too bad. I added glitter which is a little tough to see in the photo because I kept getting a glare from the acetate when taking the pictures. Finally the crumpled white tissue paper was added on top of the crystal effects and set aside to dry.

stamps- SNSS Elegant Blessings
CS- white, baja breeze, saffron, granola dp from basic grey
accessories- baja and saffron reinkers, rhinestones, organdy ribbon, glitter, crystal effects

The Sweet N Sassy stamps blog has more challenge info. Here is the link to the tutorial on SCS for this technique. The rest of the Sr. DT have some wonderful samples to share with you as well.
