Tuesday Morning Sketches #696

 Hello!  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit and would love it if you left me a few kind words so I know you were here.

The latest revisited sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week's sketch is Tammy's pick and she chose an easy going sketch, too.  I love this sketch because it's a great jumping off point.  Dress it up or key it simple. 

My card features an svg cut file I got from the Silhouette Design Store.  We're up to letter L in the alphabet challenge with my card traders group and I could only think of lemons.  I was stuck on them so I just had to do it!  I cut the leaves from light green card stock and then used Altenew inks to darken them up and add shading.  I used a Copic marker for the center line on the leaves.  Same with the lemons, these I cut from light yellow card stock and then used Nuvo inks for shading.  I designed the sentiment using Cilantro Leaf font, welded it together to make it cut as one piece.  I cut it 3 times and layered together to create a dimensional and sturdy sentiment.  I finished the sentiment by stamping "you're so" in green ink - this came from the Smile stamp/die set from Pink & Main.

The patterned paper is from DCWV.  It worked out well because the leafy green pattern was one side of the paper and the yellow and white pattern was on the other side.  So I cut the paper to 4 x 5 1/4, cut 2 inches off the end and flipped it over to use the yellow side.  On the green side I trimmed about 1/8" off so that I could color block.  I embellished a little using enamel dots from Altenew.

I love how this card turned out.  Fresh and vibrant!  Just how lemons should be.

Please join us at TMS.  We'd love to see what you make from this sketch.
