Boo Sprite Boy... Mojo Monday Sketch

You knew this one was comin', right? He's freakin' cute, Yo! :) As soon as I saw this little dude in the new TAC catalogue, I wanted to give him a spider yo-yo... that's just how I roll :)

I saw the Mojo Monday #94 sketch and really liked it, so I started grabbing trims and halloweenie cardstocks and started layering. No patterned paper!


Stamps: Victorian Elements, Spunky Sprite Boys, Happy Haunting, Punk Princess (retired)

Paper:
Basic Black & Olive cardstocks, Premium White, Bazzill Mono-Yellow Oranges, Mulberry Meadow cardstock (purpl
e - retired)

Ink:
Burnt Umber & Noir Palettes, Moonlight White Brilliance, VersaMark

Other:
Pop dots, Prismacolors w/ mineral oil, foam tape, distresser, misc. trims, Creative Cafe button, orange blingy


It kinda looks a little busy, but I really wanted to use my new brocade stamp on a creepy card :) I stamped the boy on the white panel and then colored it in with a black marker... this gives a great shadow around the image after it is up on pop dots!

What is that little orange blingy, you ask? JoAnn's had these flip-flop adhesive jewels for half off... I grabbed the orange & black set immediately... me thinks I should go back for more :)


You should totally check out Mojo Monday's sketch... it was a fun one!


What do you think?

BARB, BARB, BARB .... what can I say that I haven't said before??? Ok, I'm gonna give you the compliment I haven't given anyone else. So when you see this one, you will know that it above, "Holy Crap", or "Awesome". This one may not sound as flowery, but it is now official my TOP DOG compliment, becuase BARB you are my TOP DOG!!

GENIUS!!
That's what you are. You are blowing me away girl. I didn't even give those Sprite kids a second look, seriously, they were WAY down on my list of sets I have to have. I NEVER envisioned them as you have. I don't know who the illistrator is but she should be proud chick!!

I lost my MOJO with the flu, but baby you are totally inspiring me!! Thanks Barb!
