mojo monday/mojo467-happy birthday

Welcoem to my take on the mojo monday sketch, I was inspired by the adorable photo from the fusion challenge...I luv the fusion challenges! The picture is sooo fun and that is what I wanted to portray in my card; gold, ink splatter, and embossing paste! I also used b&w stripped washi tape. The birthday sentiment is from the Verve set treasured words. Be sure to check out the mojo makers cards, they are always inspiring!

mojo monday/mojo466-kindness is a beautiful thing

lots and lots of fun with today's mojo monday sketch, I flipped it to create the taller version and I luv how it turned out. I used a watercolored background and then added ink droplets...luv the tumbled glass ink from tim holtz....prolly my favorite color of his collection! I added embossing paste, washi tapes, glossy accents drops, clear gemstones, and of course a little stickles to the flower. The stamp and sentiment are from the verve stamp set kindness matters.
