Tuesday Morning Sketches #485

Hello - thank you for coming back!  I have missed our visits.

Tuesday Morning Sketches and the card world/art world has lost an amazing artist.  It is with great sadness that former DT member, Jessi Fogan passed away on December 27th.  This week we honor Jessi by revisiting one of her last sketches.  Please join us in remembering her.

My card features stamps from Simon Says Stamp and paper from Pink & Main.  It's  clean and simple card, for the most part.

I stamped the base card with the leaves using Surf Blue (SSS) ink.  I then stamped the same onto a piece of paper from Pink & Main's Take Flight 2 paper pad and heat embossed with Hero Arts white detail powder.  I didn't have a solid paper that matched exactly so I rubbed the ink onto some white paper and then cut out the square mat for the focal image and the tag from a Spellbinders die.  The main image I tried using the watercolor pencils I got from Crafters Companion.  I really don't like these pencils.  They are going home with my daughter.  Maybe she can make them look nice.

As I write this post - it's actually Monday night at 8pm.  2 1/2 hours and I head out to pick up my oldest son at the airport!  Yes, my sailor son who is stationed in Japan is home for 2 weeks!!!  I am one happy momma.

We'll see you over at TMS blog.  Be sure to leave the team some love!

what a clean, restful uncluttered card, I like the way you stamped on the based and then carried it forward on the panel...you've brought together a look that really supports your sentiment!

Beautiful card! I'll have to remember the trick of inking paper to get matching CS!
So exciting that your son is coming!! Enjoy your time together!!!

Such a pretty clean and simple card! Love the idea of creating your own cardstock by using the ink color!
