I had a little Mojo this Monday

Don't forget about the blog candy giveaway. For details click here!!

So, if you are following any of the olympic news then you may know the torch is making it's way across the province of B.C. Today the torch was in the city I live in, Langley. As exciting as that is... they decided to do the majority of todays events on our street. Traffic nightmare!! Or so I thought... I left work a little early so that I wouldn't be late for getting my daughter and I was quite early. So I came home and enjoyed some quiet at my craft table. Here's what I came up with :

For the color challenge at : There She Goes (pink, red, brown)
The Pink Elephant Challenge : Valentine

This handsome little devil is a stamp from Penny Black. Too cute!!

and I used a new product, for me. I just picked some up. I don't have a clue how long it's been around?? Probably forever. But I love new finds - even if I'm the last one to know. It's called diamond glaze. It's glue and it makes whatever you apply it to, appear glossy and raised. Kinda cool, right??!!

Not the best picture... but I assure you, it's pretty cool stuff!!

And here is another card I created using another stamp from the same Penny Black acrylic set.
Using the sketch from 2S4Y
the color challenge from : My Graffico

I paper pieced the balloon (for dimension) and it's colored with Tombow watercolor markers.

And as a last step, I added Stickles to the flowers for some sparkle.

Hope you enjoyed. Happy Monday!!
