June Sketch For You To Try

Happy June! Summer has finally found it's way here. The pool is up and I get to wear the cute sandals my mom bought for my birthday back in March now. We have about 10 days of school left and then we will be done with the 7th grade. Both Emilia and I are ready for a break. I just hope the great weather we are having now sticks around for awhile. I am hoping to plant some herbs and tomatoes this weekend too.

Today is also the 1st Saturday of the month which means it is time for another Sketch For You To Try. This month our sponsor is Stamping Bella. Unfortunately the image I chose to work with did not arrive yet but as soon as it does I will be making another card with it. In the meantime here is the sketch

This is what I came up with.

Continuing with my use of the PTI Year Of Flowers stamps I started by stamping then scanning and resizing this months flower, the rose. After that I printed it out twice on Neenah White Cardstock then colored it with the PTI Sweet Blush Copic Trio. After I was done with that I cut out the middle of the second image then attached it with foam tape to the first one to make it 3 dimensional then I cut it out using a circle Nestabilitie Die and distressed the edges with Chamomile Ink. Continuing with the sketch I used floral patterned paper from Beatriz Jennings Etsy Shop behind the rose. The Gingham Patterned Paper is from the Girls Paperie Vintage Whimsy Collection. The Aqua Mist Piece was embossed with tiny dots. I matted all the layers using Berry Sorbet Cardstock. The tiny tag was made with the PTI Tiny Tags stamps and dies. The sentiment is from the original Mixed Messages set. I attached the tag to some Berry Sorbet Grosgrain ribbon then added an Aqua mist button on top. To finish the card off I added some machine stitching.
This month please join me in welcoming Joanne Basile as our guest designer. Also be sure to stop by Jen's Blog and the other sisters blogs to see what they did with this sketch as well.

I am seeing such pretty cards made with aqua! And that color is so perfect for summer and pool weather. Great job on the layout and the rose, perfect! BTW, you can do cracked glass with regular EP, you just have to use four or five layers, that's how I do it. Saw a comment you made on another blog. Have a great summer!
