Tuesday Morning Sketches #144


***Please scroll down to see my surprise at the Timeless Tuesday challenge.***

Welcome back for another fun sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. The Ribbon Carousel is our wonderful sponsor this week. If you haven't visited their shop...you're missing some really great ribbons and fibers.


This cute fisherman is an Inky Antics stamp that I colored with Prisma colored pencils and blended with Gamsol. I don't have any fishermen in my family so finding embellishment for this adorable image was a challenge in itself! The 'fish hooks' are actually stickers that were placed on the paper then embossed with a PTI embossing plate to give them a little texture and to camouflage the sticker edges.  The fish are 'quickset eyelets'  from the Eyelet Outlet. If you have ever given up on setting eyelets, you don't know what you're missing. These little cuties are set with a ball point pen. Check them out...there's even a demo!


The netting that the fish are escaping from was made with jute from the Ribbon Carousel. As many of you know I am determined to fill a basket with men's cards, so I don't have to make one every time I need one! I'm not too crazy about ribbon on a masculine card and you can only used so many buttons, so this jute was a perfect fiber for embellishing my masculine cards. (I bought about 6 different masculine colors of jute....shhh...don't tell my DH).

Here is this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch:



Please play along for a chance to win a great prize from The Ribbon Carousel...beside the prize...show me what you can do with the sketch I designed! Still practicing these sketches!

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
