Forever Free (TE) - SFYTT Aug 2012

Hi All! And a Very Happy Thursday evening to you! Thought I would pop in to share a quick post with you of my latest creation, inspired by TE's Darling New Mark Your Spot set and Jen del Muro's Fab August Sketch For You To Try... 8-)
I stamped my Fun little Clouds and Hot Air Balloon with Memento Tuxedo Black and did a little paper piecing and colored up the rest with my trusty Copics. After fussy cutting them out, I adhered them to my Sentiment focal panel and popped them up with a bit of foam tape. My Sentiment panel was created with TE's Notepaper & Clipboard die cut that was stamped with  TE's Notepaper ALC stamp with Memento Rich Coca and shaded with a touch of Tumbled Glass Distress ink. My Mats and BG layers were created with a combination of Bazzill Basics Lagoon CS , dp's from Echo Park's Darling Sweet Day 6x6 collection and a bit of shading with Tumbled Glass and Vintage Photo Distress inks.. 8-)

Here's Jen's Awesome Sketch...

Here are the supplies I used on my project today and you can find them all at the TE Store...

Hope you all have a Fabulous day & thanks so much for stopping by! 8-)
