Hi Blog Friends! Here we are back at Tuesday again, and time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge (TMS#137). This week, Jessica, of There She Goes Stamps, is sponsoring us, and it's also the Judged Challenge, so the added twist is: Monochromatic.
Check out Melissa's sketch:
And, here's my interpretation:
I stamped the sentiment and cake image with Colorbox ink and set it with my heat gun before coloring with Copics. This card is for my daughter to give to a friend for her birthday, and my DD's one request was that I use a lot of Stickles, so I've used it on the cake and the two little candles in the sentiment to give the card a little sparkle. I wanted to add "pearls," but I think something is wrong with my Violet Pearl Pen. The dark purple dots on the small squares are the Pearl Pen. They wouldn't retain a pearl shape at all--just flattened completely out. I noticed while using it that it was very thin. Guess that one may never work right.
I loaded up the inside with more Stickles, but left most of it clean so my DD can sign it.
If you'd like to enter two challenges at once, the current TSG challenge is a "Surprise" challenge, which means simply to add a surprising element to your card. This could be a hidden message or pop up. If you really stretch your imaginations - this card could really hit that WOW Factor.
Ready to play? Good! Because we're ready to see what you do with this. Have fun and don't forget to go to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and link up your creation and leave some love for the team. Be sure that if you want love left for you to turn off word verification. And, if you do decide to add the TSG challenge go on over to the TSG blog to link up there, too.
Thanks for stopping by today!
