Mojo Monday 552

Hi friends! It's Monday and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch! I hope you can find a little time in the next couple weeks to play along with me!

I'm an equal opportunity stamper, so feel free to use 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 February 7, 2021. I have included dimensions on the graphic later in this post, but feel free to change them up to suit your needs, and never worry about substituting a shape or layer.

Sometimes I create sketches from my past cards, and other times I literally sketch the layout on paper, then create the card. More recently, I've been gravitating to ink blending or mixed media backgrounds and I don't use as many layers as I used to, making new sketches a little harder for my brain to crank out. So yesterday morning I sat down and sketched out this quick layout and I had so much fun picking out papers and elements to fit it. It just goes to show how mixing things up every now and then in your crafting process can really boost your creativity.

For this card, I pulled out the gorgeous Forest Tea Party collection and cut my panels, inking the edges and matting with stone ink and cardstock.  The background is from the Wood Creative Pad and I stamped the Typewriter Text Background over it in stone ink. This background is part of the Overstock Sale at Sweet 'n Sassy this month, and it's one of my favorites!

After building up my layers, I decided I wanted to use a flower in place of the circle, so I pulled out the Precious Poppies set and colored and fussy cut the flower, adding some Nuvo glitter drops to the center, then bunching up some twine to tuck under.  The sentiment is from the Sentimental Wordfetti set. This set is simply perfect for so many occasions.

Alrighty, now it's your turn! I hope you've been inspired to create something with this sketch . Thanks so much for stopping by.
