Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch from yours truly. I had a bit of fun playing with stencils and distress inks last week, and am continuing on this week. Here I used broken china and mermaid lagoon distress inks with a Donna Downey stencil and the stencil monoprint technique.

Both the background and the flowers from Button Best are done with this technique. I fussy cut the flowers and their centers, then added some white gel pen accents to each petal to lighten things up. The sentiment is the Psalm 94:18 verse and I stamped the larger flower from Button Best in the corner with so saffron, then again on so saffron paper for the yellow panel. A few leaves cut from black using the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set and a few little rhinestone flower centers finish things off.

That's all for me today! I hope you have a wonderfully creative start to your week. Thanks so much for stopping by!

I wanted to stop by and see what you did with the sketch. I must say the sketch seems a bit busy but you did a wonderful job pulling all the elements together! I just love your work and now I am your newest follower! Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
