Tuesday Morning Sketches #135


Good morning (again!)  It's time for another fun sketch from the gang at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I realized St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, so I thought I should get busy and make some cards.  I used one of my favorite standbys...Changito!

Changito is colored with pencils; his eyes are accented with a black gel pen and I added a touch of glitter to his 4 leaf clover.  I like the contrast of the Kraft and distressed edges with the crisp white of the image panel and the sparkly glitter and dew drops.  I actually did a bit of surgery on my card...when it was done, it just didn't look quite right to me.  I extended the horizontal striped panel...afterwards I thought it looked so much better.  Funny how something so small can make such a difference!  Sometimes you really need to make those small adjustments to make the sketch work....

Image: Stampendous
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Kraft, Canvas Corp. DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: Robin's Nest Dew Drops, Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

I hope you will check out the rest of this week's creations...maybe even leave some kind words for the DT's efforts.  I would love to see what you come up with using this sketch....

Thanks for stopping by!
