SWAT June Sketch


We have another fabulous sketch to inspire you this month.  Sadly this is the last sketch you will see from Janice as she finishes up her term with Sketches with a Twist we wish her all the best for her future endeavors.  This means S.W.A.T. is on the hunt for a New Sketch Designer, could it be you?  For all the details head here.



Janice's sketch this month is focusing on a popular scrapping trend while the twist this month is to incorporate fabric into your design.

Here's my card.


The Geisha is the Sakura Image from Platypus Creek Digitals.  I have covered her kimino in with some red and yellow polyester fabric which I had some old swatches from.  I also used a red swatch layered behind my sentiment which I punched out with my square punch.  The sentiment and the flower on the geisha's dress is a rub on from American Crafts.  The Felt Flowers are From Stamping Up and the Background Papers are from Echo Park.  To create the background design to match the sketch, I punched out circles from two of my patterned papers and laid them in a grid pattern I then simply took a ruler and drew the lines connecting the circles.  If you wanted to these lines could have been sewn.  But every one knows I so don't sew! 

I can't wait to see what everyone both on the DT and our participants create this month.  To link up your entry simply follow Linky Instructions under the June Entries heading on the Side Bar of the Sketches with a Twist Blog.


I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Card Makin Mamas - #46 Feeling Punchy
Inspire Me Fridays - #61 Anything Goes
