June SFYTT - Lil' Inker Designs

Happy first Saturday of the month! Are you looking for the new Sketch For You To Try?

This month we're sponsored by the awesome Lil' Inker Designs, one of my favorite companies! Check out all their super clever dies and the companion sentiment sets!

Here's our sketch:

Isn't that a fun one? Feel free to use stars, as shown in the sketch, or any other embellishment you'd like. I'm liking the relative simplicity - background, large focal panel, and a few embellishments. Less thinking required, which is a most welcome thing during the crazy end-of-school-year chaos!

I used Lil' Inker Designs' adorable 2 Cute Ink - Cutie Cat stamp set, along with the clouds from Rainbows & Clouds Dies. Coloring is with a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The wavy and chevron patterns are from the Indie Chic lines by My Mind's Eye.
