June is here! Which means that I'm running into a very busy month - my oldest son is turning 5 years, my niece and nephew is one year older each, another niece is getting confirmated and my oldest niece is getting married in the end of the month. And I'm so lucky to be her Maid of Honor!! ;) Yes, this is absolutely going to be a busy month!! ;)
But June is so much more than "me and mine" - it's the first summer month here in Norway. And today is the "kick off" for this fantastic and exiting month - my kick off is a new sketch challenge from CLP Challenge Blog!! :)
Hmmm... Have I told you how much I love Chelsea's sketches?? Ha ha, yes I think I have! But I can't say that too often. I loooove her sketches - and I lovelovelove her pieces of art ! She's so talented, so inspiring and SO including and generous. Yes, I'm a huge fan of her!! ;o) Thank you Chelsea for giving me this fantastic opportunity to join your design team, words can't tell how honored I am to work with you and your amazing girls!! ;)
In June we're sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps. Kellie is SO generous, and have offered all of the CLP girlies an image to work with. Thank you SO much, Kellie !!
I was a little sceptical to work with digi's since I've started to color with Distress Ink reinkers, but Kellie has made a tutorial on how you can combine watercoloring and digis. Since I don't have an embossing tool, I couldn't try this out. I've also heard that laser jet printers works great for digis. But since I don't have that EITHER, I had to try "the messy style". And it got a little messy - but in the end, it turned out quite good, I think... Ha ha!
Here's some pics of my card, based on Chelsea's beautiful June Sketch ;) I made this card for my niece's surprise wedding shower party last Saturday ;)
