Mojo Monday!

I just love Monday's. I really try whenever I can to play along with the mojo monday sketch challenge.

This week is a fantastically simple sketch (which I love).

Starting out with a sketch is like going to the gym. It helps jumpstart my creativity and get the blood moving!
I started with this stamp (on the left) and inked it up with bashful blue and real red markers.

I knew I wanted this one to have some shimmer, so I stamped it on a shimmer card stock starting out. Next, I added some brads to the main image.

I pulled out my embossing folder and embossed some red designer paper, then sanded it down to make it soft.

When the card was assembled I took some champagne shimmer paint (about 6 drops), and mixed it with 1 ounce of rubbing alcohol and sprayed the mixture over the whole face of my card. I know this second photo is dark, but it shows the shimmer paint a little bit, it is so beautiful in real life. It has gold tones that really bring out the brads.

Happy Monday!
