Mojo Monday #3...

i had a lot of fun with Julee's sketch this week. i recently got a couple new stamp sets and made use of them here. These petals from Technique Tuesday's Loves Me, Loves Me Not reminded me of snowflakes so i went with that. i've been thinking about Christmas cards lately and it's time i got started on this year's batch.

i had some harlequin PP i wanted to use here, but only a small piece, so i recreated it with my harlequin foam stamp (i forget who makes it). The circle piece peaking out at the bottom is from another new set, Bumble Bee by Inkadinkado. i embossed it in silver and then pierced the holes (hard to see here). The main image was actually stamped first in Colorbox' Fluid Chalk ink in Ice Blue, then Royal Blue pigment ink. Unfortunately, you can't see the Ice Blue in the picture. The little "snowflakes" floating around the petals are stamped in silver and then i added some Stickles that don't show in the photo. The center contains a shiny snowflake sticker, then a punched circle and brad. i took this picture tonight so the light was a bit off. i may try for a better shot tomorrow - if so, i'll repost this pic.

Ingredients: CS - Paperbilities, Colorbok textured; PP - Hot off the Press (blue snowflakes); stamps - TT's Loves Me, Loves Me Not, Inkadinkado's Bumble Bee, harlequin foam stamp, Alphabet Pixie's Love Letters; ink - Colorbox pigment in Royal Blue, Colorbox Fluid Chalk in Ice Blue, Ink It Up in silver, Ranger Archival; chalk; silver EP by Stampendous; brad - MM; ribbon - Offray; sticker - EK Success; Star Dust Stickles; pop-dots.
