TMS#130


Good Tuesday morning!  Jessica, from Tuesday Morning Sketches, has drawn us a fun sketch to work with this week.  Our sponsor is Stamp Fairy; Gerda has the cutest digital images!  I was going to get a new image, but the more I looked the more I found that I liked....  I just couldn't make up my mind, so I went with the image I already had....  Barry is really fun to color....

I went the clean and simple route with this card, but I would like to try the sketch again and take it up a notch.  Isn't versatility great?  Barry is colored with Prisma pencils and accented with glitter.  I wanted to let the DP shine, so I used just some simple beads for the sentiment.  Was thinking of adding some snowflakes, but I made myself stop...after all, the snowflakes on the DP are so pretty.

Image: Stamp Fairy Digital Stamp
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Orchid Opulence and Soft Suede, Crate Paper DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter (Barry's hat), Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust" (snow), Alphabet Beaads (Hobby Lobby)
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, DMC Floss


I really can't wait to see everyone's take on Jessica's sketch!  I hope you'll check them out too and leave the DT a bit of love for their efforts.  I would also love to see your take on the sketch!

I am also entering this card in the Crafty Cardmakers challenge, which is to use beads.

Thanks for stopping by today; have a great week!

Barry is "beary" cute, Angela. I agree that DP is a super background for the cute image. Love the 'purple' and have to remember to use it more. The letter beads are a unique touch. I have a container of these, I'll have to dig them out. TFS.
