Hi everyone, not only is today Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday, but it's also release day! To celebrate the two amazing new sets, Heartsong and Purse Birthday, the SSD design team and guests have put together a blog hop. If you've just happened upon my blog today, you'll want to go back one stop to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. And then, when you're finished here, you'll head to Wendy Jordan next. (I'll link to her again at the end. And, just in case any of the blog hop links are broken, the full designer line-up is posted at Skipping Stones Design, too.)
As the Skipping Stones Design guest sketch designer for January, I'm excited to bring you the second of my four sketches for the month, but first, a big thanks to all who played along this past week. The entries were fantastic! I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!! To play along, just link up your creation to the SSD58 sketch post on the Skipping Stones Design blog. One lucky winner will receive a free stamp set or half off any stamp set in the store!
Ready for the sketch?
And here's my sample, using the new Heartsong, which I absolutely LOVE! The music theme is fantastic and the style of illustration is just perfect for the vintage, shabby, rustic look I love so much!
I stamped the two butterflies onto one of Basic Grey's Curio patterns, then trimmed them out. The different card layers are also made of various Curio patterns. For some fun texture, I used a Pink Paislee Artisan Element behind the sentiment. The sentiment is done in three layers, all die-cut with Spellbinders dies -- in back, a Labels Fourteen, in the middle, a tag from Fancy Tags (which I shortened), and in front, a Petite Oval. Along the bottom are some Kaiser Craft adhesive pearls in Pewter.
That's it for me! Don't forget to head over to Wendy Jordan's blog next! And when you're finished hopping be sure to head back to Skipping Stones Design to take advantage of their "buy three, get one free" sale!
Thanks for stopping by!
