Mojo Monday 427

Good Morning, well I finally finished my Christmas shopping, how about you? Friday my daughter and I went out and got the last little goodies. We had a fun day. So yesterday it snowed in Evergreen where I live and that was just the excuse I needed to check out the latest card challenges. The Mojo Monday 427 sketch gave me the perfect excuse to break out one of my favorite Verve Stamp sets, Bright Spirits. I just love the ornaments.
Mojo Monday 427

I started with Whisper White cardstock for my card base. I used watercolor paper for my design elements. I stamped the images with SU Basic Black, then painted the images with a watercolor brush and my Distress Markers (Barn Red, Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood and Scattered Straw). With Brilliance Pigment Ink (Galaxy Gold) I used a sponge dauber to sponge the edges of each square. That little bit of sparkle really added to the images. I also added the gold to the Sentiment Circle. I matted the rectangles and the circle with some green plaid paper I've had so long, I don't remember where it came from. The red mat has been embossed with a Elizabeth Craft Design Embossing Folder, Fleur De Lis. I thought the swirls went well with the font in the sentiment, don't you? I then finished off the card with some green ribbon scraps I had.
Thanks for stopping by:)
