Mojo Monday 519

Hi friends! Welcome to July! It's the first day of the month and since July is my birth month and I'm busy, busy, busy with the boys, I'm only going to post one sketch in July. We'll start back up with bi-weekly sketches on August 5, 2019.

As always, you're free to play along with any papercrafting products your heart desires and enter as many creations as you like. 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 August 4, 2019. I have included dimensions on the graphic later in this post, but feel free to change them up to suit your needs.

I'm a red, white, and blue fan through and through, so couldn't resist starting off the month with a patriotic card. I pulled out the brand new, just released today ADORABLE Fin-tastic Friends set from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps and colored up this patriotic little mermaid. She's colored with copics and then I used a crystal clear lacquer pen on her hair and some glitter for extra shine.

While there are some fabulous sea themed sentiments, there is NOT a sentiment in the set that says sea to shining sea. But I had a plan, so did a little finagling with a few of the sentiment stamps (seas the day, fishing you well, and to say) and a marker to create the sentiment.

Last season, I got these fabulous papers from the Land that I Love line by Pebbles on summer clearance for 10 cents a sheet. Although I typically don't use 12x12's, I knew these ones would get used. To stress the words I wanted to come through, I created some different layerings to make them stand out.

I started out with the new Jungle Mist liquid watercolor. This color is fantastic! A bit aqua, a bit teal, a bit jungle green depending on how intense you paint it. Love it here as a backdrop on watercolor paper.

To finish the card, I glued patterned paper to a foam sheet, then die cut. I then added some star rhinestones, clear lacquer accents and more glitter. I needed them to shine!

Speaking of shining, the July release from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is simply stellar. Click on over to check it all out! I've linked the entire release at the bottom of this post.

Alrighty, now it's your turn! I hope you enjoy creating with this sketch! Can't wait to see what you create with the sketch!

This is adorable, Julee! I never would have guess you finagled for the sentiment but it's perfect! Enjoy your month!

Perfect card with those papers and your mermaid is stunning. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I hope a whole month will be long enough for me to use a Mojo sketch since I haven't seemed to be able to lately. I will definitely be using my Verve Starry die, that die gets constantly used so glad I bought it!!! xoxox
