Tues Morn Sketch


Now that I found Tuesday Morning sketches I pop over there to check out what the sketch it like and I took a fancy to this weeks one.
I realised that my pile of cards are missing the dreaded Mens cards and the ones I have done, I've actually used to send myself. So I have coloured a few images to work in their favour.
This little chap is from Lily of the Valley and one of their old ones and the papers are from Kaiser called Devonshire.
The green was a bit bright and still is but its better than it was, I toned it done with a blending tool and a distress inkpad.
I have run the brown plain colour mat through a corrugater to give it some depth and the photo corners I made myself. I keep forgetting to stamp the sentiment further in so I can thread a button to stick on the end.
Two days without rain here's hoping to a third.

  12. Great card Debby - the image is perfect and I love your photo corners - very effective AND I don't think the green is too bright! I see your note about moving the image so you can make a hole - I made a card yesterday, one of those where I faff around for ages changing my mind about everything and when I had finished it I realised I had missed our a whole background layer :) Mary G x

  25. More cuteness! I've got that Devonshire Tea pad too, I like your toned down version of the green. I'm forever doing that with sentiments... or printing too close to the edge then using the corner rounder and chopping off the tail of the y on birthday or something, duh! Donna ☺

  59. Thanks for the tips about credit repair on this blog. Things i would advice people would be to give up the mentality that they'll buy right now and pay later. Like a society all of us tend to do this for many things. This includes holidays, furniture, as well as items we want. However, you have to separate your own wants from all the needs. When you are working to improve your credit rating score make some sacrifices. For example you are able to shop online to save money or you can turn to second hand shops instead of costly department stores with regard to clothing.
