Good morning and Happy May Day! It's time for another fun sketch from the Tuesday Morning Sketches crew; this one is courtesy of Marie. Our sponsor this week is The Ribbon Carousel.
I chose an MFT a' la mode to work with today; it's that time of year to be thinking about teacher gifts (can't believe we have less than a month of school!). The image is colored with pencils and accented with a black gel pen. It's cute out and adhered to the image panel; white was too white, cream wasn't right either and then I remembered PTI's Soft Stone...perfect! I found this cute paper at Hobby Lobby and thought it was perfect...I added some ribbon and a few apple buttons to made it "pop" and it's good to go! (I cut the shanks off the buttons with a craft knife and adhered them with a Glue Dots.
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Soft Stone and Smokey Shadow, SU! Marina Mist, The Paper Studio DP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Embellies: SU! Marina Mist Grosgrain Ribbon, Apple Buttons (my stash...thank you, Kathleen!), Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, MFT Die-Namics Sweet Stack Labels
I hope you'll play along with this fun sketch...I'd love to see what you come up with.
