Tuesday Morning Sketches #244 - Sweet N Sassy Stamps!

Good morning! It's twist week at Tuesday Morning Sketches, and that means that we want to see you use the sketch along with the twist of RAINY DAYS. Perfect for the month of April! To win you must use both the sketch & the twist - but if you skip the twist you are still eligible for a spot in the top 5 :)

Our sponsor this week is the always fabulous Sweet N Sassy Stamps, and they're having a release on Friday - did you see they have matching dies? *want*

This is one of the last pictures I'll be happy with for a while - my camera appears to have something horribly wrong with it, overexposing all the shots & horizontal distortion lines across every bleeding image. Off to the shop it goes, and enter my phone as camera for a bit. Sigh.



Supplies: stamps from Market Street Stamps; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; 1 1/8" circle punch; Distress inks: Barn Door, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves; yellow embroidery floss, paper piercer, needle




The saddest, saddest sun ever. 

Here's the sketch:


This sketch is open until next Sunday, April 13th  - be sure to hop around & see what the rest of the team created!



xoxo,
Jessi

I know he looks sad but at least he has the colourful raindrops to cheer him up and very soon there'll be rainbow.... that'll put a smile on his face!
hugs, Asha

Your sun haz such a sad! It needs to look more closely at that gorgeous rainbow of raindrops... love it, Jessi!

Creative beyond belief--fabulous, Jessi!

Melissa Craig said...

Awww... what a sad sun and a super sad story. I'm sorry about your camera.

Your card is wonder Jessi, I can't believe you hand stitched the sun's rays - they are perfect. I would've guessed machine sewing. Nicely done.
