Mojo Birthday Surprise
This card is for SCS CC203 and Mojo Monday Week 71. The color challenge was to use Baja Breeze, Pacific Point, and Garden Green. i don't have any Baja Breeze so I went to my stock pile of Soft Sky. Would you believe that this is my first time ever to use Garden Green? Yep! I really like it and on the next order I put in I will get a pack.
I started off by stamping the bird in Versamark and heat embossed it with a blue embossing powder that is almost exact to Pacific Point. Next I colored the bird with pastels (what was I thinking???) but I didn't like it. I dug around in some drawers and found some Pearl Ex that I had forgotten about. I have always had difficulties with Pearl Ex so that is probably why it was buried deep in drawer. To use the Pearl Ex, I took a brush and lightly painted the bird's body with glue then used another brush to apply the Pearl Ex. No mess! It is not exactly how I wish it would look but it is better than just pastels. To accent the bird I used dark blue Stickles.
