TMS #452


Another Tuesday has rolled around, and it's time for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #452. This week we have a sketch designed by our own Debbie Foster and it's a fun one.


I pulled out a stamped image I've had for quite a while (the company who made it is now closed) and decided to make a little vacation card. I colored the turtle with Copics, adding fluorescent Copics to the surfboard. I matted the panel with black, then added a turquoise die-cut done with a Spellbinder's swatch die. I added an embossed panel of "water" done with a SU! seaside ef, and darkened the embossed lines with a Copic marker. The plaid dsp is by Lawn Fawn and the sentiment was done with an old wooden stick stamp. I used a SU! scalloped round punch along with a regular round punch, coloring the mat with an orange fluorescent Copic. The sun is a die-cut by Lil Inker and the center was made with a Poppy Holly & Leaves die. I added some TE enamel dots and a twine bow just for fun.

Now you can head over to my DT members to see their creations to inspire you to play along:



Here's the prize up for grabs this week:



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to play along this week. Do have yourself a fabulous week ahead!

I do so miss the stamps from Craft Lounge. You chose a great image for this sketch. I like how you used the sentiment as an embellishment to the side. It really does look like this will be a fun one to work with. Hope you are enjoying some of this sunshine.

Adorable! This card just screams summer/vacation! I recognize this little guy but for the life of me I can't remember who the company was.
