Good Tuesday morning! It's time for another fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches; today Theresa has done the the honors and our sponsor is Paper Pretties.
We went out of town this past weekend and I had the opportunity to shop at 2 stamping/scrapping stores. I'm always excited when I get this kind of opportunity because the only stores I have close are big box stores. So I was like a kid in a candy store! Even though Valentines is so close and there's not a lot of card making time left, I couldn't resist some of the lovely papers I found. This line is from Echo Park and is called "Yours Truly".
I stamped my image on CS and DP; then colored the image, cut it out and pieced it. I like the subtle text in the background. I added a bit of glitter to the pink hearts. I also tried something a bit different embellishment-wise. I love the swirly bling I see used on cards, but don't use it myself so I thought I would give it a go. I tell you, I had that bling here, there, and everywhere before I was happy with it! LOL Good thing it is not overly sticky!
