Hi friends! It's Monday and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch. I'm officially on vacation, but I pre-scheduled this short little post so you'd have a little Mojo for your morning. Here's my sample card using one of my favorite Verve sets, Blue Skies.
The making of:
Pretty Minuet papers caught my eye for the square panels, which I aged a bit with some new Pan Pastels and distress inks. Next I pulled out a scrap of an old dictionary page that came with an order from Frost it Pink, applied some Gesso to it, then some more Pan Pastels (artist quality pastels kind of like Stampin' Pastels only so much smoother and richer) and stamped the Blue Skies sentiment. Some twill tape, twine loops and a flower were added to the side and I dirtied up the butterfly embellishment with Gesso, Glimmer Mists and some Champagne glass glitter. The kraft base is stamped randomly with the Notebook paper image from Blue Skies, then distressed and I finished off with some more glimmer mists and a little Stardust Stickles on the flower.
