A Little Bit of Tuesday
Happy Tuesday morning. It is time for another sketch to inspire you. This week's sponsor is Sweet Pea Stamps. You will have a chance to win four images from our sponsor. Sadly, the DT did not get an image this go round, so while you will see some creative use of the sketch, you will only see a couple of images from our sponsor.
My card is combination of whimsey and color. The card base is white with a blue mat and a multi-colored pasley designed DP for the background. The circle (which looks darker in the photo than in real life) is an orange that matches the background color perfectly. The circle is matted with a scalloped circle of green (which can also be found in the background). The fish-tail banner picks up the lighter green in both the background print and the shoes and apron of the image.
I have used an older Saturated Canary image which I colored with Copic markers in the colors found in the DP. Since the image was rectangular rather than square, I cropped it as closely as I could to the image and did not use a mat to keep the size more compact. I did add three brads (again in the colors found in the DP) just to the right of the image.
I think, after you see all of the inspiration the DT have provided, you will find this sketch to be quite fun and versatile. Why don't you give it a try and then enter your creation in this week's challenge at the Tuesday Morning Sketch blog. We always enjoy seeing what others do with our sketches.
