May Sketch For You To Try

Happy Saturday all!  It's the first Saturday of the month and that means it's time for a new Sketch For You To Try!  This month's sketch is fabulous (as always) and we have an awesome sponsor - Your Next Stamp.  I was lucky enough to meet the wonderful people at YNS last month at Scrapfest.

I chose to work with this super cute new stamp - BBQ Scene.  We part own a couple of barbecue stores so I'm pretty sure I gasped when I saw this stamp at Scrapfest.  Oddly enough - this is pretty much how the back of our house looks too.  I coloured the image with copics and paired it with some Lily Bee This & That papers (which coincidentally I also picked up from YNS at Scrapfest).  I used a felt heart and a spatula charm for the smaller circle element in the sketch.  And as you can probably tell, I switched out my image shape since the stamp I was working with is in a square frame.  

And lookie!  YNS has been kind enough to offer a discount code for you to use!  Here's all the details:

Here's this month's sketch:

And you'll definitely want to go check out the rest of my sketch sisters to see their amazing samples.  Also, you'll want to head over and meet our newest sister - the amazing Jen Tapler!  As well as this month's fabulous guest designer Kerri Michaud.

(ding ding ding -- you hit the nail on the head in your email to me earlier this week... I'm going to write you back later, btw! :) ) I didn't know you owned barbeque stores! I don't know why I should know that, but that was my first reaction when I read your post! My next reaction was "I want that image!" (ENABLER!) then, "Where'd she get that cute charm?!" Love, love, love your sweet style, PPL!

What a fantastic image, Kerry! Love the whole summery scene! Amazing coloring and embellishing (love the spatula!), and I love seeing the main panel as a square. Hope you're having a great weekend!
