Another Fun Sketch!

     Happy Tuesday!  I woke this morning and was excited to see the new sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches #426.  Last week got away from me and I was not able to play along.  I jumped right on this, today!

     I used a new Darice embossing folder that I found at Tuesday Mornings.  Totally decided to go with that watercolor effect, so I colored on the folder with my Spectrum Aqua pens, and added a spritz of water.  I then ran it through the Cuttlebug.  My stamps are something I picked up reasonably on Ebay and they were stamped and cut out with a Gina Marie stitched circle.  The deer was colored with a water brush and the same markers.  The outlines are Hero Arts Intense Black ink, as is the sentiment, from the same stamp set.  Quick and easy!

     This will also fit the challenge at Shopping Our Stash #326  Get Sketchy... Use any sketch... mine is above!

     I like to follow directions so as per my lovely commenter, I am adding this to the Crop Stop October Link Party #33

     I have the divine pleasure of being off today, so I may see you again soon!

     I was ever so lucky to score a win with this card... Thank You, Crop Stop!

Wow, you were quick on the draw today! That's a great masculine card. Never saw that embossing folder before. Our Tuesday Morning closed. :-( Miss browsing that store, you never knew what you'd find! Thanks for playing along with us at TMS again this week.

Hey you, glad you had a day off and a chance to play with us at SOS this week... Your card is just awesome, I love, love, love it! It looks vintage and you've colored out so beautifully. I'll be on the lookout for that EF at my nearest Tuesday Morning!
