Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge

This week at Isabella's Sketchbook we want to see some Summer Fun on your cards and Isabella has some beautiful images for you to use ! I've used the sketch over at Stampin' for the Weekend who also want to see blue and yellow. I've used ProMarkers to shade the image and then cut it out with Labels 8 Nestabilities. I've sponged Broken China Distress Ink around the edge before removing the die. I then used a stencil and sponged Broken China over it and cut out two pieces using a Labels 8 die. The background paper is from Pink Petticoat and the corner is a Martha Stewart punch from a round the page set. I've cut the corner piece and the two smaller pieces from some card that was put through my Cuttlebug using the Distressed Stripes EF and that had Broken China rubbed over the top.

The sentiment has been stamped with Teal Stazon ink and cut out with circle Nestabilities.

I hope you get chance to join us this week at Isabella's and you must check out her fabulous images !

Thanks for looking
