Tuesday Morning Sketches #351

Good Morning!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it was designed by Patti, who incidentally is sponsoring this week, too.  She's offering a lovely stamp set and embellish pack that you're sure to love!

My card this week is a clean and simple card.  I made these cards to thank Hollyanne's dance coaches for a wonderful 3 years.  I love the technique that I learned from Jennifer McGuire on coloring glitter with Copics.  Check these out!


In real life these pointe shoes are sparkly and bright... I want a pair!  Like I said, clean and simple.  I used an old tool... I'm mean I've had this ruler for 20 years!  It's a Creative Memories cutting ruler and I dusted it off because it was perfect for this.

One card has gold sequins and the other is a line of orange Stickles.  But I cut the pointe shoes from white card stock that I covered with a piece of Scor-Tape.  Then rubbed the glitter in firmly.  Then I colored the image with YR07 Copic marker.

Please join us this week and be sure to visit the DT members.  Have a great day!
