Tuesday Morning Sketches #161 - Raisin Boat!

Happy Tuesday! Tuesday Morning Sketches is being sponsored by Raisin Boat Stamps this week, and each design team member is featuring a different set - you have GOT to go check out the prize details for this week! Such a cool idea :)
Here's the sketch we're working with:

I chose to rotate the sketch:
Supplies: Stamps from Raisin Boat, "Pretty Bird;"
papers from Fancy Pants, "summer soul;"
Palette Noir ink;
Old Paper distress EP;
sun face stamp from Market Street Stamps

I used my Tim Holtz design ruler to pierce the sun's rays
before stitching

I paper-pieced the fab flamingo, and gave her a little beach to stand on
with some unheated distress EP for sand :)
Here's the set that I've featured today, courtesy of Raisin Boat Stamps:

Pretty Bird
I love the variety of occasions covered in this set - and there are punny sentiments too? I'm in!

This sketch is open until Sunday September 2nd (holy moly, already?). Don't forget to see what the DT has for you - and all those awesome Raisin Boat sets!
Shelby, guest designer 

I'll be back shortly with my Shopping our Stash post - with any luck - our internet has gone dodgy & cut out on me every few minutes today, so heck, I'm not even sure THIS is going to publish. Fingers crossed!

Ok Jessi, you totally ROCKED the sketch this week! Love how you flipped it, and all the details just worked in perfectly for this adorable flamingo! Fantastic job!!

Cheryl said...

Oh, this is cute! Love the flamingo and that fantastic sentiment. I need to make a card like this then find someone older than me to give it to. Sad that doing that would take me a lot longer than it used to. ;) Fab stitching on that sun, and great use of the ep for sand.

Great job incorporating those stamps into the sketch. You're right those sentiments are just too too 'pun'ny!

Dawn said...
