Well "yee hah " Mr Mojo made a brief appearance tonight and I really enjoyed making this card.messing about with distress ink pads and perfect pearls spray again, I can't get over the lovely  shimmery effect it gives and I love daubing it all on with my fingers, mucky tyke ! Every time I use the Tim Holtz butterflies I get the "wow" feeling, I just love this stamp ! The Hero flowers were done with markers and spritzed with the spray and worked just as I wanted (for once)   . I'm just happy that I finally got a bit of enjoyment back instead of struggling to create . I also made a start on a second card which I hope I can finish tomorrow if Mr Mojo hangs around .This is for:-

Make My Monday - Nature- Butterflies or dragonflies
Make It Monday - Anything goes

  8. Wow Joan! This is absolutely stunning. The stamping and colours are just amazing and love the clever embellishing too.
    Lovely to see you at MMM again this week and good luck from me.

    Thanks for your kind comment on my vaseline technique card. That stamp you have too works best when you stamp it on a Judikins Kromekote postcard which come in a set of 45 from Stamp Addicts at £5.50.
    I find these invaluable for stamping photo type images with fine detail as they give a really sharp image.
    Hope this helps, Fliss xx

  9. Beautiful card Joan. Love the colours.
