Tuesday Morning Sketches #137

Hooray it is time for another judged challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  This week our sponsor is There She Goes Clear Stamps. In case you are new to the judges challenges, Melissa and the DT will select a winner and 5 participants will be selected to the TOP 5 category. The winner will receive the prize from the sponsor and the TOP 5 will receive a badge for their blog. Since this is a judged challenge there is an added twist, the twist for this month is MONOCHROMATIC. So follow the sketch but be sure to use a monochromatic color theme.


This adorable image is from Repeat Impressions and was colored with Copic markers. The monochromatic postage squares were cut with a SB die then embossed using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The floral edging is from Martha Stewart, the ribbon and white floral edging are from the Dollar Tree and the pearls are from Michaels.

Here is the marvelous sketch designed by Melissa, our talented leader.



As you can see I turned the sketch on it's side. Grab some papers and play along. I can't wait to see which color you choose for this MONOCHROMATIC theme.  If you need added inspiration, stop by TMS and see the fantastic cards created by this great DT.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
