Mojo Monday 510

Hi friends! Time sure seems to be flying by and it's already time for another Mojo Monday sketch! I love seeing what you create and I hope you'll play along!
As always, you're free to play along with any papercrafting products your heart desires. Use the sketch as inspiration for your creation, then come link it up below so I can come take a look! The linky for this challenge will close on March 10, 2019. I have included dimensions on the graphic later in this post, but feel free to change them up to suit your needs. I LOVE square cards, but if you don't you can always make it into a standard card, just leaving white space at the bottom.

For this go round I went with a very simple sketch that can pack a lot of punch. I grabbed a mixed media background I had previously made. I think this one was done using a smooshing technique with Lindy's Magicals shakers. I loved the colors and thought it would pair well with one of the butterflies I had alread stamped, cut, and colored from the Sweet 'n Sassy Made New set. I placed this on a square die cut that I smooshed with worn lipstick Distress Oxides. (If you didn't catch it yet, you can check out my YouTube channel for a super quick video where I demonstrate this technique.)

Next, I embossed a beautiful sentiment from the Inspirational Word Art 1 set (now back in stock!) in white and then finished off with some black mats behind my layers to make things pop.

Okay, now it's your turn! I really hope you enjoy creating with this sketch. Let me know in the comments if you prefer simple or layered sketches the most.

Great sketch as always, thank you! I checked out your video and was reminded how easy it is to get a great background (those on both today's card and the card in the video are gorgeous!), so thanks for that as well!
