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.
