Kerry's Birthday Mojo Challenge

DSCF3555

I stumbled upon Kerry's blog where she is offering a nice little BG pad for playing her very own birthday challenge: a birthday card in the color purple, with glitter!  I had just been thinking how neglected my glitter stash had been, so I decided to give it a whirl:

I incorporated the Mojo Monday 79 sketch into my card as well:

I went back to Sage Shadow as my base with Almost Amethyst and black for the panel.  It's hard to see, but the AA is stamped with Linen.  For the glitter, I edged a Lovely Lilac mat with strips of Sticky Strip, then deluged it with some MS glitter!  My upline calls this the "marquis" technique--maybe it's too glam for this sedate image--but I thought it was pretty!  My base was also stamped with Tres Chic and the sentiment is an old Verve's Wonderful Wishes. 

  • Stamps:  Friends 24-7, Tres Chic, Linen, Wonderful Wishes, Verve
  • Paper:  Sage Shadow, Almost Amethyst, Basic Black, Lovely Lilac, Watercolor
  • Ink:  Stazon, Sage Shadow, Garden Green, Sahara Sand, Almost Amethyst, Lovely Lilac
  • Acc:  MS Eyelet Punch, MS glitter, Organdy & Grosgrain ribbons, Sticky Strip, Aquapainter

The only thing I do with my xtra fine glitter is tip the bottles and say "Oooooooh", and they are FIVE YEARS OLD.
