TMS #152: Hello Treasured Friend

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Hi Friends! It's Tuesday Morning Sketch time! This week, our sponsor is Paper Garden Projects, and if you haven't visited their site yet, you should. They carry clear, rubber, and digital stamps, as well as other products. The coneflower image on my card today is one of their free digi stamps, as is the "Treasured Friend" sentiment. Isn't it beautiful!

Melissa has a fab sketch for us, again. I really like this one, as it lends itself to either a card or a tag.

I've been seeing a lot of white on cards lately, so I decided to give it a try, too. The coneflower image and sentiment was printed on my printer. It's hard to see in the photo, but the swiss dot rectangle also has a pale blue background stamp on it in blue. The bow is made from seam binding that I dyed with reinker a few months ago, and my layers are popped up.

I colored the image with Copics, then coated the bottle in Glossy Accents.

The coneflower stamp on the inside is from the With Gratitude stamp set from Flourishes that you can only order through their FLIP program, and the sentiment is another Flourishes set called Sweet Nature.

Be sure to take a look at what the rest of the DT has created this week, for some fab inspiration, then create your own project and link up on the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge blog! I can't wait to see what you create!
