TMS 538 - Tuesday Morning Sketches

Hello, everybody!  It's Tuesday and that means we have another sketch for you at Tuesday Morning Sketches!  We continue the month of January with the Design Team choosing their favourite sketches from last year, and this week is my pick!  I've only been with the team since November so I did not have the pleasure of playing with this sketch the first time around.  It's TMS 515 designed by Melissa, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did!


The gorgeous Fuchsias are from Beccy's Place, and the image is a freebie this month (thank you, Beccy!).  I opted for the pre-coloured version and then die-cut with Spellbinders Floral Ovals.  The Hummingbird is from Fred She Said and so are the green and purple papers (Purple Pansies Set).  I die-cut and layered the papers according to the sketch, and then I fussy-cut the pre-coloured hummingbird so I could pop it up with foam tape. The red strip is actually glitter paper, but it doesn't look very sparkly in the photo.  The stitched rectangle dies are from Gina Marie Designs, and the sentiment stamp is from Clearly Besotted.  I finished off the card by adhering three red sequins.

Check out our Sketch 515 for TMS 538 - I hope it gets your crafty mojo going!   I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

OMG what a great take on the sketch. I love the combination of the fuchasia with the hummingbird. This is just gorgeous. Haven't seen any Hummers here. Much too windy today with another wind storm.

Beccy said...

You did a great job interpreting the sketch Kitty, it looks like a very useful design. I love your mix of colours, they're so eye catching and coordinate perfectly with the flowers. The hummingbird is gorgeous! Great idea to place it to look as though it's drinking from the blossoms.
Cheers,
Beccy
