Tuesday Morning Sketches

Good morning! It's Tuesday, so that means another sketch from Melissa at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog. This week our sponsor is Robyn's Fetish; the image I'm using today is called "Franny da Kitty".

I thought it might be fun to paper piece Franny, so I paper pieced the kitty and then paper pieced her ears, nose, and heart. I colored the small pieces with a marker, cut them out and adhered them to Franny. All the panels were cut with Nestabilities and then mounted with the large scallop dies. The card is embellished simply with ribbon and paw print brads. My daughter thought the brads didn't go...she suggested I put them on Franny's paws.... Hmmm, not sure where she gets some of her ideas, but I think maybe it was just her ornery streak coming out!

Image: Robyn's Fetish
Ink: SU! Positively Pink and Brocade Blue Markers
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Bashful Blue, PTI Dark Chocolate, Bo Bunny DP

Thanks for stopping by; I hope you'll head over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to view the DT's samples. I'd love to see you play along too!
