Tuesday Morning Sketches #127

Good Morning Sketchers -

It's back to work for me today - kids tomorrow! I do look forward, but it takes time away from what I have enjoyed doing this break - coloring!! I didn't make all the cards I planned, I simply practiced coloring.

Today, we have a great sketch from DT member Kathy and a great sponsor - Sparkle Creations. I want to thank Sparkle for sending me the fabulous image to ink up! This is Valentine Oliver and the minute I saw him I envisioned the 70's, peace signs, and Donna Summer. I found the perfect paper and sentiment. I think my card came out cute! I hope you like it too.

Isn't Oliver just the cutest? I think when I color him again, I'll make his skin tones a bit darker. I have been watching Suzanne J, Dean and her coloring techniques on YouTube and I am totally enjoying practicing.

Thanks for Kathy for a great sketch. I hope that you'll join us this week. I can't wait to see what you make. Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT to see their amazing creations ~ Jessica, Kathy, Marie, Dawn, Angela, Melissa, and our guest designer Cheryl. We all create cards for our own enjoyment, but it's always nice to have a little love!

Have an awesome day!!
Theresa

Cute Valentine card! I think your skin tone coloring looks good...it is fun to watch those "how-to" videos though....

What a great mix of papers, Theresa! I love how you used that colour combo and the sentiment too!

So fun Theresa! Love the sentiment and DP. Of course now I have the song "Love the Way You Love Me" stuck in my head.

Oh, how cute!!! Oliver does look a bit retro. I love the color you gave his suit--reminds me of all the different colors guys used to wear back then for proms and weddings. ~Hugs, Cheryl
