Island Getaway Layout for Sketches in Thyme

Welcome to my latest Sketches in Thyme inspiration.  These photos of are myself and Tonya from The War and Treaty.  I don't often like to have my photo taken especially in my swimsuit but I could not resist the opportunity to meet this special woman.

Here is the sketch.

A close up of my cluster.  I used a swath of netting, paper flowers, die cut shells and starfish, real shells, stickers and a brad.

I die cut the scallop circle and used the CM custom cutting system on the rest.

I stamped this sentiment.

Another view.

Scrapbook paper from Megameet. I remember this lady was an artist and she made her paintings into pages.  It was not marked.

Alcohol Ink Panel with Stampin Up Tin Tile embossing folder for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Happy Summer Solstice and welcome to my latest post for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. This week we are partnering with Double Trouble challenge with a twist to create your own background.  I did double duty on the twist. I embossed the yellow paper and added a piece of alcohol background.


Here is the sketch:

This version I created for my SIL's birthday last week. 


The embossing folder is 6x6 so I was able to snip a square from the leftovers on which to mount the butterfly.

I used a die cut sentiment for both, I placed this one inside of the card.
