Hi Friends! It's Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge time!
Between this week's fab sketch and the cute digi stamp I got from our sponsor, Paper Pretties, I was able to come up with a super fun card for my DD to give to a friend for his birthday.
With The Avengers movie coming out, we had lots of super hero gifts to choose from for the birthday boy, so we went with a Captain America action figure that has a working parachute. This adorable digi stamp, aptly named, "Aaaaahhhhh," was the perfect image for the accompanying card. The image actually comes with clouds drawn around the dog, but I didn't need them since I was making my own clouds, so I removed them in my photo program, then printed it out and colored the image with Copics. I used my new cloud stencil and a light blue Memento ink to make the clouds. I also made the cloud bg paper. The pattern papers are both digital. I didn't have any navy twine, so I used red and white twine and blue Distress Ink to come up with the right colors. The blue frame around the image is popped up with foam dots over the image.
I hope you'll join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches! We always have a great time, and, who knows, you just might win a prize from Paper Pretties! Be sure to check out the rest of the awesome DT's creations over at the TMS site, for plenty of inspiration, then get creative with the sketch and link your project up. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great week!
