You're So Cool - SFYTT

Hello and happy Sunday, friends! Today I'm playing along with Reverse Confetti's June Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) challenge.

If you haven't played along, you can find all the rules and the link-up HERE on the Reverse Confetti blog. You have until noon CST June 29th to play along.

Here's our June sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

I thought the Let's Chill popsicles would be perfect for the three circles on the sketch. The popsicle handles even remind me of the three green tabs! I layered the popsicles over some American Crafts Dear Lizzie Happy Place patterned papers, stamped a sentiment from the Let's Chill stamp set along the bottom, and finished with a liberal sprinkling of sequins in the popsicle colors.

The popsicle die comes in three pieces -- the popsicle body, the handle, and the pair of rectangles that give that traditional popsicle look. Instead of using the rectangles as cut-outs, I die-cut a scrap of transparency, which I used as a stencil to ink in the popsicle markings.

Stamps: Let's Chill

Confetti Cuts Dies: Let's Chill

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black; PTI Green Parakeet, Hibiscus Burst, and Bright Buttercup

Paper: Neenah solar white card stock; PTI Green Parakeet, Hibiscus Burst, and Bright Buttercup card stock; wood veneer paper; American Crafts Dear Lizzie Happy Place 6x6 paper pad; PTI Sheer Basics vellum

Other: white linen thread, sequins
