Linen White Glitter

Hi friends! It's Monday again already, and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week, I kept the sketch simple, so you can dress it up or down to your heart's content.


When I sat down to stamp, I didn't really have a plan, just a couple of new things on my desk that I wanted to test out.  One was a wink of stella clear brush pen and the other was some Dylusions linen white ink spray.  So I decided to color a flower to see how sparkly the glitter pen would be.  Pulled out On Occasion and stamped two of the flower images on white cardstock, colored with Copics, added some glitter pen accents and fussy cut.

Next I stamped the frame from On Occasion and cut with the matching Occasion Frame Die, then stamped the Be Okay sentiment in the center and added some orange and glitter highlights.  The banner sentiment is from Small Phrases and I hand trimmed the banner.  For the look of two panels with only one, I stamped the loopy border stamp directly on some kraft cardstock, then added a strip of washi tape and crimped just up to the washi tape line.  I masked off this portion, then sprayed the white linen spray on the top portion.  Love the look.  Some walnut stain sponging around the edges of my layers and I was done.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a fabulous start to your week!

The white linen looks gorgeous and the pop of color against all the neutrals is perfect in my book Julee.

Love everything about your card, especially the pretty flower, partially crimped layer and the sentiment. The white linen looks great on the kraft layer.

I LOVE how it turned out. Isn't Wink of Stella fun. Hard to photograph but if we know it's there we can imagine it. Thanks so much for sharing your talents and your time.

That loopy border with sentiment inside is so much fun! And I like how the flower petals sort of echo the wiggly lines. Great that you explained about the linen spray, all in all, a sweet card.
