Tuesday Morning Sketches #96

It's another fabulous skecth as Tuesday Morning Sketches with a great sponsor - Inky Impressions. Be sure to check out their blog they have some fabulous stamps. I spent a great deal of time on their blog and I adore their line of girls.

I have to admit this sketch stumped me! When I saw it I immediately saw "church" but I am not a church person when it comes to my stamps. As I kept staring at the image I had all kinds of ideas, but when I would go to put it together I would end up trashing what I started up with.

The sketch is amazing! I think there are so many wonderful possibilites. I think I need to start thinking outside of the box versus taking things so literally. I'm glad that I have the next 10 weeks to work on that!


I used one of my new stamps sets from TSG titled Lighten Up. I love this set. It reminded me of my grandmother and the gold lamps that she used to have in her home. I selected my background paper because it reminded me of wallpaper in an old Victorian house. What's more perfect with this paper than lamps!!

I appreciate your stopping by. I can't wait to see what you create. I love to hear your thoughts...be sure to leave me a comment.

Have an awesome day!

I love your card, its really clever. I saw the sketch and this over on the TMS challenge, and I thought it looked really interesting.

Great use of images with this sentiment, and its so elegant.

Really great Theresa! I agree the lamps, especially in the gold, remind me of my grandmother, too. She has one just like the first one. Such a great take on the sketch, really cute!
