My Mojo caught the Bug...


Mojo Monday sketches are serious inspiration and as you can see in #77. Cuttlebug Challenges equally enhance creativity, their challenge is one to add some glitter. I love glitter, in the jar that is, its the only safe place for the stuff.I truly have not found the perfect glue and yet for this instance liquid glass did quite nicely. I decided since I was combining the two I may as well toss in one more element completely new to me, an Acetate card base. This stuff is really pricey so measure twice before you cut and so one and so forth, also it's a lint magnet so do any distressing before you affix those pieces to the card!



Do you like my daisy? I actually drew it, I know it's rather primitive but drawing was never my strong point, I've decided however, to try it out here and there for a change.

SO pretty!!! I completely understand about the glitter. I LOVE the look of it on my cards, but once that jar is opened I seem to have glitter everywhere BUT my cards ;) Stickles....that's the way to go.....all the beauty of glitter with the ease of glue!

Well I LOVE the daisy and you could sell it as a design for a rubber stamp quite easily :)

I agree re the glitter. Gets everywhere. Once I've used it, it'll be around for weeks. And no matter how many showers later, it's still on my face.

I LOVE the daisy! It's BEAUTIFUL!!! Quite Beautiful in fact:) Love how you colored it too! I'm with you on the whole glitter thing. If I use it, I tend to buy 'pre-glittered' items, so I can just adhere them, and it looks all sparkly. Cuz sometimes a girl just needs a little bling, ya know? LOVE that card!!

PS- Depending on what I want to do, I use spray adhesive or Martha Stewart's glittering glue. Just thought I would offer up a suggestion for you! :)

Beautiful card!!! And I totally agree....loose glitter belongs in the jar....that's why I like Stickles and Shimmerz...all the glitter and non of the mess.
