Tuesday Morning Sketches #421

Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by!  The latest sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches is up and it's a great one.  It's whimsical and so super easy.  But I just know you're imagination is going to take off in wonderful directions with it.  Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up but with the hurricane last week my card had to be created with manual supplies.  We never really lost power completely but with so many tornado warnings it was best to keep everything off and unplugged.

My card features the Harvest Sunflower set by Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the images onto watercolor paper using Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks.  I had intended splatters but the water slipped out in one blog so I got a lightened area in the center.  I think it looks cool.  I stamped the leaves also with Distress Oxide inks - Peeled Paint and Peacock Feathers.  The rest I kept simple, die cutting circles using Stax 1 and 2 dies by MFT and embossing my panel with this neat chevron pattern with a folder by Darice.

I didn't realize until I posted this photo that I put my focal image on upside down.  The intention was to have the leaves pointing lower left not upper right.  We'll just say I rotated the sketch a bit!  This was a quick card to make and would make a nice note card set.

We'll see you over at the TMS blog and don't forget to say hello to the Design Team - they created some great cards!

Beautiful card! I love the fall feel it has!
I would have never noticed the upside down leaves if you hadn't mentioned it. ;)

I think the sunflower looks perfect with the leave where they are, I'd have never thought it was done opposite of what you had in mind. I love the graphic embossed design of the cardbase too! Very pretty!
