Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good Morning! So much for sending my kids back to school today. They'll be home today and tomorrow due to the continued snow and they're still digging out school buses. They'll be taking summer school at this rate.

Well, in other news, over at Tuesday Morning Sketches, we have a new sketch, a new sponsor, an exciting new feature and it's a judged challenge week. Tracey from The Stamping Boutique is joining us this week with her adorable digi-stamps. I am very thankful that she sent some images to me and my team to play with.


This image is so adorable. It's called First Dance and this young couple is too adorable. My sketch didn't yield for me to use the entire image, but you can see it here in The Stamping Boutique shop. It is so sweet!

The base is Brocade Blue, I chose it to match the boy's blue jeans and then added a bit of purple and Bashful Blue to pull in the girl's dress and apron. Instead of adding another layer of paper, I drew a frame around the circle focal image and added some hand doodling. I am pretty happy with the overall effect.

I hope you join the team and I this week. I'll see you over there!
