TMS #455


Hello and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #455. This week we're changing it up again and using a "blank canvas" challenge instead of a sketch. You're still welcome to use any sketch you like, but for this week we're using the 3 elements described in the graphic above.



Oddly enough, I used the same image as the card I made for last week's TMS challenge; only this time I gave the hedgie a strawberry ice-cream cone instead of chocolate chip :) I took a piece of white-core navy cardstock and embossed it with a Cuttlebug decorative tile ef, and lightly sanded it to allow the white to show through on the embossed portions. I added a snippet of plaid dsp, along with a turquoise mat for the image, then punched 2 tabs with daffodil cardstock and a retired SU! mini banner punch. The "Thanks" sentiment is from Taylored Expressions and was die-cut 3 times and adhered together for a little dimension and texture.

Now it's your turn! I hope you can find time to play along and if you need a little extra inspiration, please visit my DT member's blogs to see the fabulous cards they've made!





Have a fabulous Tuesday and happy stamping!

Carol

I'm going to attempt to play along this week with the challenge but honestly, I break out in a cold sweat on color challenges. Guess I'll have to try anyway though! LOL!
