Tuesday Morning Sketches #69



Happy Tuesday! It's time for another sketch from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry and I had these adorable Christmas ants to work with...love them! There were actually 2 different images; in the other, the ants were eating Santas cookies. Can't wait to use that one too!
I did flip the sketch for this card. Isn't that one of the fun things about sketches? You flip them and it opens up a new perspective and possibilities! The image is colored with pencils and I paper pieced the bulb. I did a bit of sponging about the image panel and the DP, just to tie in the gray. The sentiment is also from Doodle Pantry; I attached it using a jump ring. I finished the card off with some sparkly Bella Dots.
Image/Sentiment: Doodle Pantry Digital
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Melon Mambo, PTI Smokey Shadow, Fancy Pants Designs DP
Embellies: Gray Grosgrain Ribbon, Bella Dots
Extras: Jump Ring, EK Success 3D Dots
I hope you will head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to check out the DT's fun creations. Better yet...play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by today; I hope your day is a good one!

This really is an adorable image, Angela, especially when you have the little guys dropping out of the main image panel! And your black shading is awesome!!
