Good Morning! Happy Tuesday! I am so thrilled about this week's Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge is the Judged Challenge so it has some added twists and turns and extra fun. And we're sponsored by There She Goes stamps, so then to top it all off, we have some fun stamps to play with, too.
So we have a sketch designed by me. The added twist is Monochromatic. Now I know we all played with this same type of challenge last week with Love to Create, but I had already scheduled this part of the challenge quite some time ago. Too late to change - so we'll just play with it again.
Do not let sketch intimidate you, it's a challenge and that's why we play. Here's my card....
I also have a little something up my sleeves, too. Theresa is hosting the week at TSG, so the challenge for TSG is What are you Hiding? Add a hidden element to your card. So I set to work last night to make my card to incorporate their challenge, too. Here's what I am hiding....
I love this swivel card. Behind the bow is a brass brad from the office supplies store. And behind that front panel is the greeting.
Now another fun thing about my card - I actually dug into my stash and old techiques. The paper is vintage Stampin' Up! and the coloring technique - well, let's just say I was pleasantly pleased that my blender pens still work. I haven't colored with a blender pen and inks in years.
So join us, and heck, while your add it - really push yourself and play along with TSG, too.
