TMS #456


It's Tuesday and time for another Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge.
This week we're working on sketch #456 designed by our own Melissa.


My card is a masculine belated birthday card and makes use of some of my favorite (retired) SU! papers that always reminded me of men's pajamas for some reason. I embossed the background with a CB Clockworks ef, and used random snippets of dsp to complete the card. The clock image and sentiment are by MFP (sadly now closed). I added a die-cut corner done with my Quikutz and some random golden "dots" that were negatives from a previous die-cutting. The sentiment was heat-embossed with white ep and the clock was colored with Copics.

And now it's over to you to give this sketch a try. Be sure to check out my DT members blogs for a little inspiration too - you'll be glad you did!





The prize this week is a bottle of duck egg blue Nuvo Drops.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Tuesday!

Wonderful masculine card, and I know I always need these belated cards. I just missed my sister in law’s birthday! There are just too many in May and June, I always miss one! Have a good day!

I think this is my very favorite SU paper to date! I've always loved it and the way you used it on this card is outstanding. Love that image you used too. Fabulous card!

Blues and browns... I love that colour combination and it does scream masculine. I think the pocket watch is perfect and a great focal point which cleverly draws your eye to the embossed background... I really like that x
