Tuesday Morning Sketches #578

 Here we are already another Tuesday and the last Tuesday in October at that!! We have only 58 days until Christmas! With that said I should be making fall or Christmas cards but noooo I’m still playing with flowery pastels - my favorites by far. 

I needed a card for a friend who is going through a lot right now so I got out a set of verses that I won from Verve Stamps years ago when Mojo Monday was up and going. I was happy to remember on the second card that the cross would look neat as a watermark behind the verse—I’ll have to remember to do that more.  I also used the new “Lovely” paper pack from CTMH.

For some reason it took extra effort for me to figure out the dimensions for the pieces for this so I thought I would put that work to a little more use and make two cards.  

Now it’s your turn head on over to Tuesday Morning Sketches #578 for our Design Team inspiration and to play along!! I can’t wait to see what you make!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches # 577

Hello thanks so much for stopping by!!

Here’s what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #577.  I was learning a little about abstract art in an attempt to get out of my box.  I’ve never tried it ever until this week and I found that it isn’t as easy as I thought it would be to make something I actually like.  I was also in the mood to get out my alcohol inks and they made it a little easier but still this was at least my 4th try!  I guess I must have had beginners luck the first time I tried them a couple years back because I really liked the two things I made back then.  If I find them I’ll try to add to post. 

I didn’t think this style lended itself to a bow like the sketch called for and I couldn’t think of a suitable substitute so I left it simple.  There’s soooooo much you can do with this great sketch by Melissa, so head on over and get lots of inspiration from our team.  I hope you have a blast playing with it and I’m looking forward to seeing what you create!!

Have a fabulous week!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #576


Happy Tuesday!  Here’s what I made for Tuesday Morning Sketches #576.  I used the CTMH Floral Background Thin Cuts die and then watercolored the edge flora after taping off for a clean edge.  I thought it was missing something so I added sketchy lines with a Pigma Micron pen.  I’m not sure if it did that a little too messy or not. It sure was fun though so I made a couple more in other colors to make a set of 3 thinking it would make a nice little surprise gift to a family member.  What do you think do they look ok?

Oops!  After I finished I realized that I got so carried away with coloring and making more that I forgot a sentiment!! I try not to leave off any of the sketch elements but I kind of like them as is for all occasion...what do you think should I add a sentiment?

I hope you have a fabulous week and I appreciate you stopping by. Have fun creating after you check out what the rest of the team made—you’ll be so glad you did!!
