Mojo Monday Stretch

I just love a good sketch challenge first thing in the morning! When I saw this week's mojo monday sketch, I knew exactly the stamp I wanted to use. I've been playing with this gorgeous medallion image a lot and have found the joys of stamping with it right on my designer paper.


First I stamped my image on a 4 3/4" square piece of designer paper from the bella bleu paper pack from Stampin up. I cut my next paper 1/8" larger, and my card is 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" folded in half to make my card base.

I stamped my "true friend" on some scrap paper and made a small banner. I attached everything with the tombo multipurpose adhesive (green tube) and just drew a line down the center of the butterflies in the back, and down the "valley's" of my paper banner.

Next I took some white shimmer paint and mixed it in a 2 ounce bottle with about 1 ounce of 91% rubbing alcohol and sprayed the mixture all over my card front. This made my card so shimmery in real life! I added some "bling" to the center of the medallion and I am done!

Fantastic sketch! I had fun! Happy Monday!

Rubbah hugs,
