Tuesday Morning Sketches #141


Good morning (again!)...since it's Tuesday, we have another fun sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  In addition to the sketch, we have the added twist of "Spring".

I was going through stamps trying to get some inspiration...I seemed to have lost my mojo this weekend...I saw this cute penguin from The Cat's Pajamas and decided she looked nice and springy.  Next I went through my DP...multiple times...I just couldn't make a plan!  Does that ever happen to you?  I decided on this pretty paper from Simple Stories; it's a bit shabby, so I thought I could distress it a bit and pair it with crisp diecuts...I like the contrast.

The penguin is stamped once on DP and again on white.  I colored the penguin, cut it out and adhered it to the DP. I added felt grass, clouds, and glitter to the kite tail.  I embellished the card simply with ribbon and a button flower, using a scrap of felt for the leaf.

Stamp: The Cat's Pajamas
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Dark Chocolate, SU! Regal Rose, Simple Stories DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU! Black Marker
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Pink Smoothie", PTI Buttons, Twine, SU! Chocolate Twill
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, The Cat's Pajamas CutUp Dies (grass, cloud border), The Cat's Pajamas Felt, Dimensionals

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
