Today's post is a sketch challenge from Seize the Sketch - it's a simple sketch and I love how it turned out! Below is the sketch...
...and here is my card for the challenge! I have really been having a TERRIFIC SUMMER...and I was remembering my childhood, thinking about the things that make up and "AMERICAN SUMMER"....so here are my memories...on a card!
I LOVE IT! It's so AMERICANA!!! The colors are Hello Honey, Night of Navy, Garden Green, Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red and Baked Brown Sugar. The stamp sets I used are Endless Birthday Wishes, Kind and Cozy, Work of Art (for the stripes of the flag). I punched stars with the punch from the new Itty Bitty Accents set. I then attached them lightly to the Whisper White paper and sponged Night of Navy ink over them, remove them and viola....STARS. I also used the Boho Blossoms punch, the Bird Builder punch, the 2 1/2" Circle punch and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.
ENJOY YOUR SUMMER!
