TMS 357 and Oddball!

Welcome back for another Tuesday Morning Sketch!!

We have a new sponsor to go with our new sketch!

Our sponsor this week is new to TMS.  Please welcome Oddball Art.  This a fun Etsy store where you can find the "perfect combo of sweet and sour glittering up the grunge" images.  These are great for those who prefer the eclectic and artsy.  The prize is 3 digis of winner's choice.

Here's the sketch that Patti created for us....

And here is my take....

I decided to use Oddball's image, Newsprint Flower to create a pretty background.  I colored the center part of the flowers with Copic markers.  I decided to go with a classic red and black color combo.  I used three red buttons for the small circle elements on the sketch.
I left off any sentiment so this card can be used for a wide variety of purposes.
This was a fun and easy card to create!

Need more inspiration?
Check out the what the rest of the DT created.

Jenée - has the week off!

Thanks for stopping by!
Can't wait to see what you create!

Congratulations Kelsey!!

And my card featuring All Dressed Up's Looking Good

I colored this cute image with Prismacolored Pencils.  I finally got to use the looped circle die from Simon Says Stamp!  A die cut banner and some cute home-made enamel dots finish my card!

and here is my card.....

We have lots of graduations this year, my daughter, my niece and my nephew.  Plus all my daughter's friends!  This card is for my nephew.  I embossed the background paper, then added a layer of pattern paper, then my image.  I also used my Silhouette to cut out the graduation cap.  No coloring on this card, just some layering.

Happy Tuesday Morning!
Yes, I know it's a little late, but life is going full tilt right now and I just couldn't get the card done on time!  So let's get to this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch!

We have another great sketch this week and Melissa has a fun prize for one random entry!

If you're like me, you have lots of graduation cards to make.  We have a full calendar this year when it comes to graduation open houses!

So I used this week's sketch to make one of the many cards I need!

The card actually came together quickly after I finally had time to sit down and create!  I used a Unity Itty Bitty stamp set for the compass image and a little wood veneer heart charm for the accent piece.  On the inside he sentiment reads " Go in the direction of your heart".  No coloring this week, just stamp and go!

Be sure to stop by and see what he rest of the DT created this week!

Lee - Last week with us!  Be sure to stop by and wish her well!

Now it's time so see what you create!

Now for my card....

I used the stamp set Uplifting from Skipping Stones Design.  I stamped the hills on some patterned paper from my stash then fussy cut it and adhered it to my sky panel.  I created my sky using Distressed inks and a blending tool.  I then stamped the puffy border stamp from the same set to create some clouds.  I colored the hot air balloon with Copics, fussy cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.  The "grass" on the hills is from a little stamp from Purple Onion Designs.
Such a fun and easy card!

Looking for a little more inspiration. check out what the other DT members created.
