Hello and welcome to this week's 2 Sketches 4 You post! We are sponsored by the Position-It this week and Lawn Fawn! There is a chance to win a Position-It and a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!!

Here is this week's fabulous sketch by the wonderful Laura:Great sketch, right?! :)

I decided to do a little video tutorial on how to make the "ombre" or tie-dyed umbrellas using the Position-It.
Check it out here or at You Tube:

Here is a close-up of the Partly Cloudy umbrella I did in blue with the Position-It.
I used my new beloved Martha butterfly punch, covered the entire card stock piece in pigment ink and clear heat embossed it for the shiny and 3D look.

A final look at the card. Thank you so much to 2s4y and the Position It! Make sure to head on over to the 2 sketches 4 you blog and play along for a chance to win!
