June 2012 SFYTT
Well, it's that time again already - first Saturday of the month and time for another fabulous Sketch For You to Try!! I hope you all had a chance to play along with us last month - Lots of exciting things in store for participants of the monthly SFYTT this year, including a chance to win another fabulous huge prize package at the end of the year!! All of the details can be found on today's post over on Jen's blog, with some of the details outlined in the "In a Nutshell" graphic at the end of this post. We have another amazing sponsor this month - Lil' Inker Designs!
First, here's a look at this month's awesome sketch:
Unfortunately I was on vacation and didn't have a chance to get my order placed in time to play along with any Lil' Inker stamps for my sample card today, but I definitely have several sets on my wish list! Instead, I created a very out-of-my-comfort-zone overly-embellished hybrid card. Check it out:
I used the new Cannon Ball digi kit by Traci Reed (Sweet Shoppe Designs) for all of the printed digi papers and lots of the embellishments - the slippers (or "flip flops" as you folks on the mainland call them), the fish, the sentiment strip. I kept pulling out lots of neglected stuff from my embellishment stash and just kept adding crap to this card until I forced myself to stop. I think I need a little practice with the Mister Huey's sprays to make it look less messy, but other than that I was happy with the way it turned out. I added some old American Crafts flair, some of my beloved pom pom trim, some chunky glass glitter in random splatters, and some Studio Calico wood veneer stars. It's a very scrappy card.
Be sure to stop by the rest of the SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they've done with this month's sketch! And a very warm welcome to our Designer of the Month, Julie Elak! Don't forget to stop by her blog to see what she's created as well.
