Tuesday Morning Sketches #700

 Hello friends.  Thank you for stopping by.  I appreciate your visit.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one is by Debbie.  It's a great sketch - good for scraps, washi tape, ribbon.  Whatever is in need of use in your stash box.

My card features a few things from the Creative Kit by Tonic Studios.  I have a bit of a confession to make, I subscribe to to this kit mainly for the stuff - not the dies.  I find that Tonic Studios dies are just not me.  They are very frilly and ornate and tedious.  But I subscribed to this kit because I feel it'll push into the more artsy side of paper crafting for me.  And since I have it, I need to use it.  So here's a card featuring only a small bit of the die set (dolphin, seagulls and sentiment).

Oh the card stock (blue) and a couple of the strips of washi tape came in the kit.  But I've had a bit of play with my inks this past weekend.  Although, probably not the best ink blending job to create an ocean sunset view, I think this turned out beautiful!  It's simple but I think striking.  The inks are all Distress Oxide inks.

I hope it inspires you to have a play with your supplies.  Be sure to visit the TMS blog and leave the team some love!

Your sunset coloring is gorgeous. All of your fishtail strips pick up the focal colors.

I wish I could play with my inks and end up with a sunset like that. Gorgeous, right down to the waves!
