FM68 Lazy Days of Summer

Let's celebrate some summertime fun on the Friday Mashup with a challenge focusing on the lazy days of summer and a sketch.

Sketch by: Heidi
So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with "the Sketch."
  2. Or Make a project w/ a "Lazy Summer Day theme (under the shade of a tree/ biking / Swimming / Sitting in an adirondack chair)."
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project w/ the "Sketch & the Lazy Summer Day Theme."

I had a lot of ideas for this card, so this month's Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge help me choose the direction.

I wanted to spend all my time on the focal point, so I created a scene with lots of paper piecing.

Here's a close-up of all the textures, sponging, brayering, and spritzing.

Stamps: Summer Splash, Sweets for the Sweet, Fabulous Phrases; Paper: Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Whisper White; Ink: Marina Mist, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake marker; Accessories: Cupcake builder punch, Color Spritzer tool, Brayer, Sponges, Circle Scissors Plus, Texture Plates Kit #4, Square Lattice EF, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Petal Cone die, Big Shot.

Don't forget to come play with us this week!  Thanks for stopping by!
