Tuesday Morning Sketches #92

It's a beautiful Tuesday in Colorado and it's another wonderful sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I get to take credit for today's sketch. Melissa has asked the DT to come up with a sketch or two - to make us really think!! I wanted something simple, so that one can make it simple or over-the-top. Today our sponsor is StampFairy. Guess what? I got a printer and I was able to select this darling digi to play with. Be sure to check out their store.

I agonized over the colors to use in this card. I wanted a total pink card, but pink has nothing really to do with spring - other than flowers. I wanted yellow because I love the rain suits that are yellow. Well, I decided to just combine pink and yellow together. I thought the colors matched well. I really took my time when it came to coloring...I pulled out my watercolor brush. I just relaxed and enjoyed painting.


Now, you notice the little water drops on the white card stock...believe it or not I cut each of of those little babies out. When I realized I couldn't set my image in the angle on the sketch, I cut her out, but in the process I lost the rain drops and I love the rain drops. I tried drawing them, but they came out too big. So I put on my magnifying glasses and cut away. I think it was worth it! I hope you do too.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have an awesome day!
