While looking for inspiration on my Christmas card design, I decided to check out this week's Mojo Monday sketch . If I wait any longer, they won't even be ready before Christmas. While I did make a card following the sketch, this card only is based on the sketch. While playing with the stamps and paper, I took some creative "liberties". This card uses the Oh, Deer paper. It reminds me of the mid-century modern style, so I used the mid-century color gray and of course, gold and silver for that mid-century sparkle. The original sketch is pictured here to the right.
The photo below is a close up on an angle to show the "shimmer" created by using the Clear Shimmer Brush and the new Gold Shimmer Brush. The gold version will be available starting January 1. The clear one was used on the light gray mat (you can see the sparkles) and the gold one was used on some of the stars and dots on the deer paper. It does not show up well in the photos, however it really adds a lovely shimmer in person.
