Mojo Monday Challenge

I REALLY wanted to participate in the Mojo Monday Contest because the sketch was just AWESOME! What a bummer it took me a whole two days to come up with something. Don't get me wrong...I stamped at least 20 different layouts that are now sitting in my trash can. :( I just suffered a complete stamper's block. I finally overcame and came up with this card using the retired Dream Come True stamp set. I must say...I'm pretty happy that I've been using a lot of my "old" stamp sets and supplies. Nice to know they aren't collecting dust TOO long!

Using the Stamp a Majig, I stamped the solid heart image in Pink Pirouette, rotating each time, as a background. I then went in with my white gel pen and made little dots...matching the theme of the dotted dsp. The row of hearts were stamped in Riding Hood Red using the Stamp a Majig, once again, for placement. I then colored in the hearts with my red Spica Glitter pen. You can get a better idea of the sparkle here.

I also used the red Spica pen to highlight the word "love" :) The cord that I used to tie in a bow on the upper left side of the main image was simply silver cord that I colored in with one of my Copic markers. Man...those Copics REALLY come in handy! I was just tickled with how that turned out. The little pink hearts on the sides of the silver hardware are merely punched out 1/4" hearts with a handheld Fiskar's punch. I then put Crystal Effects on top of them to make them look like those super-cool Epoxy hearts that seem to be sold out everywhere! And I'm spent! Until later!

Your card is too cute! I love the colors and the bright hearts on it. How imaginative to line up the hearts like that - I have a thingamajig but never use it!
