There is another great sketch this week at Mojo Monday.  I haven't had time to participate in the challenges recently, but I really like this week's sketch.  So I burned the midnight oil last night and made a card.  I hope you enjoy!
My stamped image is from Serendipity stamps.  I colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out with an oval nestability.  While the image was still in the die, I sponged on Sand Memento Ink.  I layered the main image on larger scalloped ovals and added some crystals.  The decorative border was done with my new Martha Stewart border punch.  Oh how I love those punches!  I also lighly sponged on some silver Colorbox metallic ink to the border design to bring out the soft grey in the background designer paper.  However, I don't think it really shows up in the picture.  The ribbon was originally white and then colored with a Copic marker since I didn't have any ribbon to match.
Copics used: Y21, Y23, Y26, YG95, YG97
  • Stamps: Serendipity
  • Paper: Prism, GKD, Cosmo Cricket DP, SEI DP
  • Ink:  Memento, Copics, Clearsnap Colorbox Metallic Ink
  • Accessories:  Jolee's hotfix crystals; Recollections pearls; Martha Stewart punch; Corner rounder; Celebrate It ribbon from Michael's; Bow Easy
