HLS August 2015 Sketch Challenge

Happy Little StampersHi! I’m back again with a card for this month’s super fun HLS sketch!


Here is the August Sketch:

Oh, the possibilities!

Here’s my card:


First I made a sheet of water-colored bg paper using my stamp press and a variety of SU! red and pink inks. Then, I used PTI’s Heart Cover Plate die to cut out the hearts. IMG_6242editedI spritzed and splattered the card base with Smooch Spritz and some pink ink. I traced a large circle die to make the string.IMG_6304editedI adhered the hearts with Tombow Liquid adhesive and drew on the little bows. The sentiment is from Stamplorations’ Trendy Butterfly stamp set.

IMG_6305editedI hope that you are inspired to play along! You can also find all of the current HLS challenges here. Stop over to the blog for some inspiration from the rest of the design team, and to link up your entry.

Sketch Challenge Rules

1. Your creation MUST resemble the sketch. You may change the shapes and colors but the sketch must be recognizable. You may rotate or flip the sketch.

2. Link back to your blog post and not your entire blog.
3. Provide a link to HLS in your blog post.
4. You may enter as many times as you like but each entry must be different.
5. You may enter as many other challenges as you like.
6. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
