Mojo Monday #530

I had so much fun creating the layers on this card for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge!  The coordinating products by Close To My Heart, make layering a breeze.  My layers are from the Every Little Thing Paper Collection.  While this collection is retired, there are still items available in the Online Only Section of my website.  I varied from the sketch ever so slightly, here is the complete sketch if you would like to play along-

My super cute dragonfly is from the Country Animals collection.  This collection is currently featured in the Stamptacular Sale!  You can get the stamp and coordinating Thin Cut die for only $5! You can also purchase just the stamp for only $2.50! The sale runs through February 29, or while supplies last.  I first stamped my dragonfly in Intense Black ink directly onto the cardstock.  I then added in some color with Copics.  I stamped the dragonfly again onto vellum paper. To speed the drying process, I added some sparkle embossing powder and heat embossed the image. I the flipped the image over and colored the underneath with Copics as well.  I adhered the vellum dragonfly with a tiny bit of adhesive down the middle, allowing the wings to “fly”.

My sentiment is from the Say It In Style sentiment set.  This set features 41 stamps and is currently on sale for $12.25!  It is a great set to add to your collection.  Here is a look at the sentiments that are included:
