Sketch Saturday Week # 162

Happy Saturday! Can you believe that it is July already? I think it is one of the months in the year that goes by the quickest….at least in our house :) My husband, myself and our youngest son all celebrate birthdays this month…staggered out every 10 days or so! Yes, it is the month of cake and BBQ’s! This year will be super busy as we are having family coming almost every week of the month! If I am scarce, you’ll know why.

This week’s Sketch Saturday is being hosted by the lovely Bente and we are being sponsored by Papilo Stamps.

Here is Bente’s fabulous sketch:

I decided to use one of my new lovely Hanglar Sailing kids stamps and I thought I would go monochromatic for this one. I used Sketch markers in the E40-E49 series.

I embossed the panel behind the image with my Stempelgelde stamp and white embossing powder. Love the added dimensional that gives. I cut the stars out with a PTI die and then embossed a Stampin’ Up stamp over on top. It makes the very plain Kraft stars look more detailed and pretty.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope the rest of the weekend is a great one.
