TMS #460


Hello and a very happy Tuesday to you. Today I'm sharing my make for the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #460 which was designed by Melissa. I really had to get the brain cells working to come up with my card this week!


I made a template marking off the squares lightly with a pencil, then used a MFT Wonky Chevron stencil to make the designs. I masked each square with post-it notes, then sponged in assorted distress inks, and lastly I drew a fine black line around each square with a black marker. The Thank You sentiment is a die by Kaisercraft  and I added a few Taylored Expression enamel dots to finish this one.

Here are my DT member's blogs if you need a little more inspiration to come play along with us. They always rock these sketches with their cards!





Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you have yourself a great Tuesday!

This surely is a different layout but one that has intrigued me! Love how you used the different colors in your little squares as the colors just pop! The Thank You diecut is perfect along with the enamel dots! Carol, you rocked this week's sketch as you have inspired me to give this a try! LOL Stay tuned! TFS!

This is such a unique take on the sketch, and the process sounds quite fiddly (which I know you are the precision queen!) It turned out great, and I like all the vivid colors of teh chevrons - very eye catching! Stay cool. TFS &Hugs

WOW! You did a lot of work on this card, and it really paid off. The chevron squares are fun and festive looking. I like the addition of the enamel dots. Your work is super.

Wow Carol! What a great and unique take on that sketch!!! I love those brightly colored chevrons and I do love that you outlined them in black like that. Lots of work went into this card I can see! It was well worth it though as it is such a bright and cherry card. Loving those enamel dots too. Hugs, Brenda
