Tuesday Morning Sketches #416

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are doing well.  Thank you for your visit.  The newest sketch is up on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog and it's a fun one by Janice.

Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps - everyone knows these images and Jodi's distinctive artist flair!  I love these images.  I flipped the sketch so that I can use the Make it Snappy Thank You image.  It also comes with a blank box so you can add your own sentiment which is what I did.

I used some really fun papers - I love the base decorative paper.  This dark teal was a lot of fun to pair with the bits of gold foil paper.  I colored the above with Copics but the BG01 marker I was using dried up!  Ack!!  I printed 4 images and already had my other elements ready to create 4 cards.  So I needed to change it up a little.

So the 3 you see here (there's actually 4) top one colored with Copics (card above), the middle card I kept the flowers white and only highlighted with a super light (B000) Copic and the bottom card I colored with my Tombow markers.  I still prefer the top card, but the middle card - which I made 2 of is my next favorite.

On a personal note Brendan arrived in Japan safely and we've been able to video chat twice.

Have a great day!  We'll see you over at the TMS blog - be sure to leave my team some big love!

Really like that image and the different ways you "colored" it. The teal paper is so pretty. Made a very nice thank you card, but would be pretty for so many different sentiments. Nicely done!

That's a great image with a box for the sentiment, and you framed it beautifully with the white scallops! I love the variation of color and how they're each different while basically being the same! Wonderful interpretation of the sketch!

Beautiful cards and colouring.

These are so pretty Melissa! I like the different blues to mix it up?! Sounds like you need to get some refills for your copics. I find the best place online to buy them is Oozak. Glad your son made it safely to Japan. Oh maybe he can send you copic refills? They are made in Japan! ;-)
