Tuesday Morning Sketches #395

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by.   The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a fun one.   It's inspired by Jessi and I think it'll be a go to sketch for everyone.

My card features stamps by WPlus9 and Pink & Main.  I used the new Petunia Builders stamp set by WPlus9.  TMS is giving a $10 gift certificate to their store.  The sentiment is from Pink & Main - my signature stamp/die set.

I'm still working on getting the lighting right in this room.  I think I'm going to have to take outside, there's just too many shadows.  I stamped the images onto Bristol smooth card stock.  I picked this up in an effort to "watercolor" with Tombow markers - but I like how it holds the ink, too.  These layering stamps are so easy to use.  You don't really have to line them up in any special way.  Love that this is a Melissa-proof set - I can't mess it up!  I layered with Bubblegum card stock from MFT.  I then cut out the hugs sentiment from black fun foam.  I stamped the other words onto a white panel and then embossed it with a dot chevron embossing folder.  I was so careful to stick my hugs piece down so carefully and get it just right onto my card... then happened to notice the black piece that I was going to mat my white piece onto still on my table!  I forgot my layer - doh!  The black would have helped make everything pop, but I guess this works.   I finished it off with some hot pink sequins.

Please join us over at TMS to play along with us.  We'd love to see you there.  Be sure to visit the team, too.  Leave them some love.
