Here Kitty Kitty

TMS #360

Good Morning friends and followers!  Thank you so much for joining me for another Tuesday Morning sketch challenge.  This sketch is by Jessi and it's so much fun!  Can you just see all the possibilities? If not, then you are going to want to stop by the blog and see what the DT have done with it.

We're sponsored by one of TMS' favorite sponsors - Sami Stamps.  Samantha, the owner creates her own lovely digital images - each have a personality of their very own.  You will surely find something you like in her Etsy shop.

Here's the sketch...

 For my card today, I used the adorable image called Tower of Whiskers.

 I did not originally intend for this card to be so muted and monochromatic, but it ended up that way. I think I would prefer a little more color, but the less colorful papers make the adorable image POP! Having been on Sami's DT at one time (before time constraints forced me to have to step down), I know that Sami likes kitty images as much as I like Kitties! I personally live with a gray and white, a tan and brown, a calico and a solid black -- a wide variety -- and while I didn't try matching my own kitties in the image, I did try for a wide variety.

I used the aqua card weight for my base card, and laid a piece of gray DP from a Recollections pad on top. For the slightly tilted piece, I used a wide dotty white and aqua ribbon. I inked around the image piece with Color Box aqua and adhered it to the card with pop dots so that it fit up over the ribbon. Lastly, instead of buttons (as in the sketch), I used a sticker I found in my stash. I mounted the sticker onto a scrap piece of the base card and punched it out because the sticker was transparent, and I didn't want the background to show through it. I adhered the circle with adhesive on one side and a pop dot on the other to make it level with the image.

We hope you've been enjoying the new sketches that we provide each week. We are having lots of fun with them ourselves. Also, we love seeing the entries each week using the sketches, so consider playing along with us. You may just be a lucky winner!
