What is it about summer that seems to fly by?! Another week has come and gone already. I survived clothes shopping with the “back-to-school duo” and we are trying to fit in as much summer as we can over the next couple of weeks until school begins. With that, I am back today with a card for Freshly Made Sketches. The incredible Kim Singdahlsen has given us a unique and fantastic sketch that is sure to inspire you! I just love it!!
While I first thought about using some pretty papers for the panels, I realized that I liked the idea of washi tape instead. I found two from SU in my stash that have differing width stripes and I thought they would be great together. I created a watercolor background using Picked Raspberry Distress Ink and then added the washi tape. I stamped the gorgeous sentiment from Studio Katia in Versafine Onyx Black and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. A few little sequins to finish. It kind of has a summer feel to it, don’t you think? Fun, bright and a little bit of whimsy.
I hope you will have as much fun with this as I did. Make sure you check out the work from the whole design team…always a treat!! I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you my project for the joint collaboration between Newton’s Nook Designs and Xyron. There is all kinds of fun happening at the NND blog so don’t miss out! Until then, have a great day!
