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....
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Kraft, Canvas Corp. DP
