Tuesday Morning Sketches #628

 Hello - yep it’s Tuesday again already!! 

So glad you are here!  And I really mean that even though I felt like I lost my battle with creative block this week. Here is my creation for Tuesday Morning Sketch #628.  I started out with a piece of Tim Holtz watercolor distress paper and I watercolored the hills and sky - blotting out a few clouds with a tissue. Then it was all warped so I sandwiched it between a few books and stood on it while eating Birthday Confetti Hershey Kisses and trying to figure out what to do next.  

My first thought was a hot air ballon but didn’t feel like searching for one in all my stamps.  My second thought was a cute critter holding balloons but I was still uninspired.  I went though a bin of old stuff trying to trigger an idea and this is what I found and what happened. 

I came across my Baby Boy stack of paper from DCWV, fussy cut the tree and alligator, die cut the oval BOY and layered them all on the card with different thicknesses of dimensional foam tape. I wish that I cut it all out a little better but my heart wasn’t really in it.  I was going to call it done so I took a pic and realized that I left out the little elements so I drew in some birds with a marker and added CTMH Prisma glitter with a glue pen and drew in some grass with a Stabilo Carbothello pastel pencil.  Kinda thinking that all that was a little too much but here is the before and after - let me know what you think!  

Looking back it was enjoyable but I really need to clean my pigsty studio and then I hope to feel a little more creative again.  

I can’t wait to see what you make with this!!!  Head on over to see what our team created at Tuesday Morning Sketches and have a great week!

  4. I'm still picturing you standing on the books to flatten your paper. LOL!! BTW, how are those Birthday Confetti HK? I think you did a wonderful job on this card. What a difference a few birds and some tufts of grass made!

    1. Thanks Debi! So the HK B-day Confetti are just ok…but of course they don’t hold a candle to Godiva Birthday Cake Truffles!!! So my advice is giving some one a few truffles is better than a whole bag of Hershey Kisses. Not that the HK are bad just now that I’ve tried the Godivas I can’t get anything else so far. ;o)

  5. 😃 You crack me up! I use my heat gun on the reverse side of the paper to help straighten it out, but have definitely left warped pieces under heavy books overnight too. Your card turned out terrific!
