Lighter Load


Hee, hee, leave it to Skipping Stones Design to make you chuckle this morning! Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Release Blog Hop and this week's sketch challenge! If you are following the hop you should have arrived from JoAnn's blog. We are going retro this month and featuring sketches from past designers. Also, we are showcasing the newest set in the line-up, Bras 3! This set is packed full of punny sentiments that are sure to make the recipient smile, but at the same time there is a powerful, meaningful message behind them. There are also two great lingerie images too!


I promise I was inspired by the sketch, even though my interpretation might be wide. I saw the circles in this patterned paper and went with that. I added a banner sentiment and ribbon tab to have a place to hang the bra from. The bra actually has a bit of lacy texture to it as well, I'll have a tutorial coming up soon as to how I did that with only two supplies!

I look forward to seeing your creations on this week's sketch challenge. You can find all the details, along with prize information, on the Skipping Stones Design Blog. But now, I'm going to send you over to the next designer on the hop, one of our August Guest Designers and a very talented individual, Tenia!

**I get to share some big and exciting news tomorrow so I do hope that you have some time to visit me!**
