Miss Seeing You
Good morning friends! Thank you for joining me for another fun Tuesday Morning sketch. I am totally loving this one - it's so cute. Fun layers and embellishment possibilities.
Tuesday Morning Sketches is sponsoring this week. We're giving away this stamp set by Pink and Main.
Here's the sketch:
My card is on the whimsical side this week, and I think it is adorable (hope you do, too). I have used a white card base, and some older designer paper. ( It is so old that the cover is off what is left of the 12x12 pad, so I can't tell you the manufacturer. I am guessing it might be DCW, but I cannot guarantee it.) I liked the retro look, but also liked the way the flowers mimicked the scalloped matting.
My little Wren image is printed onto X-Press It brand card and colored with Copic markers. I used solid green for the scalloped matting behind the image. I used the accessory pieces dies from Tim Holtz's Funky Cats stamps and dies to cut the sun glasses (from a pieces of silver paper) and the hat (from brown paper inked with SU brown ink).
I typed the sentiment "I Miss Seeing You" on the computer and printed it off on the same brown scrap I used for the hat. I used a La La Land die to cut the conversation bubble around the words. I inked the bubble with the same Stampin Up ink I used for the hat.
This sketch could have gone more formal looking using a different image and flowers (or butterflies as pictured on the sketch) and a small tag rather than the sentiment bubble. Hop on over to the Tuesday Morning blog and have a look at how the other DT members interpreted this sketch. I am always amazed at how each of us uses the very same sketch yet achieve so many different looks.
