Be Joyful

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is an easy one that can be dressed up or down for all sorts of options.

I started with the Celebrate inspiration challenge in mind, so pulled out spun sugar and worn lipstick distress ink, smooshed it onto watercolor paper and spritzed to get a lovely pink.  Once that was dry, I used the Gothic layering stencil to sponge on more worn lipstick ink for a fun background, finishing the background by sponging with worn lipstick and distressing the edges and flicking a few water droplets.

On another piece of the smooshed paper, I embossed the Be and Joyful sentiments  as well as the large bee from The Buzz set in silver.  The bee is cut with the coordinating The Buzz Die Set , then I added some glossy glaze and a dusting of glitter to the wings for ultimate sparkle.  

My circle element is a bit abstract today... a little nest of metallic silver thread behind the scrap of silver polka dot vellum.  I scraped a bit of watered down white paint over the vellum, then scribbled some glue along the edges and sprinkled on some silver glitter.  I finished off with some sparkling rhinestone flourishes.

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