Mojo Monday 175

After a very long absence from my art studio, I am finally back at it and so happy about that! I started with a "One Sheet Wonder" project because that always helps me find my groove again when I am feeling less than creative.

Today I'm sharing one of the cards from the One Sheet Wonder project. I used the Mojo Monday card sketch for this one. When I get all 5 cards from this project posted, I'll do a post sharing the whole One Sheet Wonder project.
The snowflake background paper was created by stamping the snowflakes with white craft ink and embossing with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper. I then color washed over it with Twinkling H2O watercolors. Once dry, I covered it with white copy paper and ironed it with a hot iron to remove the embossing which leaves a smooth, crisp white image.

A few beads added to a plain pearl corsage pin make the pin extra special. A little glue holds the bottom bead in place nicely.

I dry embossed the flap of the envelope with the cuttlebug and a snowflake folder to add nice touch to the envelope.

Stamps/Images: Snowflakes- SU, Ornate Circle- Inkadinkadoo Round Frames, Friendship- SU
Paper: Marco's watercolor paper, White, Lilac and Teal Cardstock
Ink/Coloring: Lilac, teal and black craft ink embossed with clear EP.
Accessories: Blue Grosgrain Ribbon, Purple Machine Stitching, Round Nesties, Blue Pearl Corsage Pin with Beads (capped with an earring back), Swarovski Flat Back Crystals, Snowman Button.

That is gorgeous! I like that technique for the background. I will have to give it a try.

Not only is this fabulous, but I am quite intrigued by that background technique. Thank you for taking the time to tell us how you did it. The OSW was a great place for you to start because you have obviously been super inspired. So happy you're feeling better and that the disease didn't steal any of your creative genius.
Your cards are still BRILLIANT!!
