New Blue Fern Studios Sketch Challenge for June!

Welcome to June, everyone!
  Here it is another new sketch challenge for you over at Blue Fern Studios. 
 Michele Singh has created this beautiful sketch exclusively for Blue Fern! Isn't it gorgeous?
 I had so much fun using it as inspiration for my first official Blue Fern Design Team project! 

I've used a combination of Ombre Dreams papers, Shannon's Dream and Julianna's Dream. Using a stencil, molding past and mist, I created a really fun background. A little brighter than I originally had in mind but love the final result. 

All my chipboard pieces were treated the same way, white gesso as a base, then chalk ink and a light touch of microbeads. 

Here are some close-ups: 

I especially love the green Layering Stem! 

Blue Fern Studios chipboard used were:

Jeweled Page Baubles

Here are the sketch challenge details:

One lucky winner, selected by a random draw, will receive a prize package of Blue Fern Studios chipboard!
In addition, we will also select 3 (or more) layouts to feature.
We have just a few simple rules to follow if you would like to participate in our sketch challenge:
1.) Feel free to interpret the sketch as you please by means of taking it as-is or 
flipping/turning/mirroring it to suit your needs! 
2). Please note that you can do whatever type of project you please - a layout, card, 
  canvas, altered item- whatever suits your mood and style! 
We would love to see the different ways our sketch can be used.
3.) You must use at least one piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard OR use Blue Fern Studios paper on your project. Please note that you do not need to use the pieces featured in the sketch
- use whatever suits your fancy! You can find the store nearest you HERE.
 {Do not use any other brand of chipboard on your project please!}
4.) Upload your project using the Inlinkz tool on the Blue Fern Studios Blog
