Swinging from the Chandeliers?? For the OCC and Mojo.

Now we can’t have that can we? Hee Hee!!

Nope, we’re all about elegance here! Although this card doesn’t have a huge immediate impact with it’s soft colours, it sure looks pretty IRL! The chandelier is embossed in silver and there are many rhinestones on it, 15 in fact. The ribbon is really a soft silver, not grey, which matches the chandelier. The sentiments were stamped in baha breeze ink which is several shades darker than what you see but I used generation stamping to remove some of the ink to lighten the impression.

I used Mojo Monday’s latest sketch and this week’s OCC challenge. Be sure to visit the OCC blog if you think stamping repeatedly to create your own layer or background sounds fun! And be sure to check out the inspiration provided by some of the best designers in the business!

Enjoy, Rebecca
