Tuesday Morning Sketches #111

Today at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have a great sketch from DT member Kathy Curry and it's a great sketch! We also have Whimsie Doodles as our sponsor. I love Melyssa Connolly's work. Most of you may know that she also draws for TSG. So I'm totally excited to work with some of her digital images.

This week is a judged challenge - you need to decorate your card inside and out. As I am writing this post I just realized that I did not decorate the inside of my card. My apologies. 

For my card this week I selected a new digi from the Whimsie shop called Steampunk Lizzie. I have been seeing some cards with a "steampunk" theme. I had to look that up to learn where the idea is coming from. Well I didn't go ALL out steampunk, as this is my first try. I thought I'd be a little toned down. I colored the image to reflect the coloring on the Whimsie blog. I just loved the image and wanted it to come close to what I saw. I totally love how this card came out. I hope you do to. I can't wait to hear your thoughts.

What a cute card! That little girl with the tough looking boots(?) and frilly pink dress is adorable. Great use of the gears and clockface and I've never see a ball chain on a card...LOVE IT! Okay, now I've got to go find out what steampunk is. I've never heard of it. Have a great week! ~Hugs, Cheryl
