TMS#91

Hello! Long time no see.... It has been busy at work; lots of overtime.... I'm happy to be back today with another challenge from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches. Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop.

I did very little coloring this week; the baskets/ropes are shaded gray, while the balloons were paper pieced. I spent a lot of time trying to find coordinating colors/patterns, but I finally decided to go with one DP and add a touch of black. Once I made a plan, this card went fairly fast. The planning is what seems to take the most time for me...how about you?

Image: Digi Doodle Shop
Sentiment: Verve "Relax" Clear Set
Paper: Gina K. Designs Pure Luxery, PTI True Black, SU! Sweet Pea DSP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Black Marker
Embellies: Bella Dots
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Prisma Pencil

You can find the sketch on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog; I can't wait to see how the other ladies interpreted this sketch...I thought it a bit challenging! I kept thinking Christmas ornaments....

Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!
