Tuesday Morning Sketches #184: Buckets Of Love

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Remember me mentioning last week about a little surprise I had for you? Well, I am SO EXCITED to finally share with you the news that I will be guest designing all February long for Tuesday Morning Sketches!! 

Tuesday Morning Sketches

I'm thrilled to be a part of this team!! Have you noticed lately how many of sketch challenge blogs are no longer active? Not Tuesday Morning Sketches! They're still going strong after 3.5 years! And the best part is, you don't have to remember when they post their challenges.....it's in their name! :)

You can check out this week's sketch TMS184 on their blog. Also, this week's challenge is being sponsored by an awesome embellishment company - Freckled Fawn! They have everything from wood and resin chips to tons of colorful washi tape! Seriously....I drooled over them! lol

 I was so inspired by all their tape, I decided to use some on my card!

I layered the washi tape on an angle to create my banner panel. To keep the focus on the image, I just used black and white colored washi tape, but with the right image, this idea would look FABULOUS with brightly colored tape too! I had Valentines Day on the brain this weekend, so I used my Buckets Of Love set from There She Goes. It's cute AND bold - just how I love my images! :) As usual, I colored it up with my Stamping Up! reinkers and aquapainter brush. Then I sewed each panel to some black or white cardstock. I inverted my scalloped border on my main panel using decorative scissors.

Need more inspiration?? Check out what the rest of the TMS girls did with the sketch!


Thanks for popping in today! I sure hope you can find some time this week to play along with us!

Hugs, Sandra

OK, using the tape on an angle like that? Freaking genius!! Look how many different patterns you get to show off that way! That's beyond clever. I really love it! And that pretty inverted border - such a fab way to showcase your colouring. I'm so thrilled to have you play with us at TMS - and I'm your newest follower :)

You have no idea how excited I am that you're joining us this month. You are such an inspiration and it's so easy to see why you're a favorite of my sister's. You are an amazing artist.

I love your washi treatment - great job. Like Jessi said so eloquently, that is freakin' genius!!

Sandra, what can I say...you are truly amazing. I love your write up and I love your card. I wish I could achieve that bucket color. I appreciated the fact that your Wednesday Trends was on Washi Tape - I had no clue what it was. I am so thankful that you agreed to join us this month. You are the BEST!
