August Sketch For You to Try Meets Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!

sfytt-post-banner


It’s the first Saturday in August and that means it’s time for another Sketch for You to Try.  As usual Jen has come up with a fabulous sketch and this month we’re sponsored by Kraftin’ Kimmie stamps. Now Kraftin’ Kimmie just happens to be one of my fave stamp companies, and I’m lucky enough to design for them as well – so I get to kill two birds with one stone today.  My card is both for the sketch as well as for our usual Saturday challenge over on the Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge blog.  Melanie is our fabulous hostess this week and she wants us to use distressing on our cards. 
I used Talullahbelle for my card as well as the sentiment that comes with Isabelle.  I paired her with some My Mind’s Eye papers and stitched around everything.  Then I raised the edge beyond the stitching and distressed it just a bit.  I wanted it to be soft and not too messy.  I coated the fairy wings with a clear Spica pen and used some vellum for the sentiment – which makes up the horizontal panel on the sketch.
