Tuesday Morning Sketches #8

Good Morning! Oh my, I can't believe this is our eighth week. Time is just flying by!! I love Tuesdays and bringing you a new challenge, but today I'm a little sad. Today is the last challenge for August which means it's also the last challenge for our Guest Designer Rose. She's been awesome hasn't she?! I have loved every design she's made to share with you. She has been a real treat to work with and help me to wish her well in her other design endeavors. She is a design team member for Sweet Sketch Wednesday, another wonderful sketch challenge blog owned by Arlana. And I have a feeling that Rose won't be leaving us, she'll be eligible for prizes!!

OK today's challenge... are you ready? Guess what! It's not a sketch. I said yesterday that we were going to do something a little different and this week I have a color challenge for you. This will be the format of Tuesday Morning Sketches, once a month, I'll throw a different challenge your way and it won't always be a color challenge. Can't be too predictable.

(OK, the last flower isn't Kraft, more like a yucky olive green, but it was the closest I had in my computer palette.)

I absolutely love these colors together. I put these colors in Stampin' Up! terms, but you don't have to use Stampin' Up! products if you don't have them. Feel free to use something comparable.

Now let's see what the DT did with these colors.

First off, here's Rose's card using Unity Kit of the Month (July) and really great designer papers! I love her card layout and her use of texture and bling. Well done, Rose!

This next card is Theresa's card and it is so cool! Awesome layout, too, maybe I need my design team to start drawing sketches, too! I think the silhouette stamps are the neatest stamps and I love that sentiment! Words to live by.

This card is from Joni and is so adorable. She's using a favorite image from Dustin Pike and her coloring is absolutely perfect!

Oh, and this awesome image is from The Greeting Farm, Wild Sprouts Collection, Edward. The awesome card was put together by Tammy. Fabulous card!

And lastly is my card. I used Unity Kit of Month (August). The large image is actually a journaling image with lines. I didn't ink up the lines and added my sentiment with pop dots.

My design team did a fabulous job this week! I can't wait to see what you make with this color combination. Let your imagination run wild and have some fun.

Be sure to comment and link up directly to your entry in Mr. Linky.


  1. Oh what a fun lineup Mel!! I agree - Theresa needs to share her sketches, that layout is adorable! I love the different takes on the color combo, it's always so much fun to see what color someone chose as the focal point. I can't wait to see what the enries look like!

  2. Great Line up everyone!
    I would have never thought to use these colors but WOW did they come out so wonderful.

  3. Wow great cards. I am definitely going to have to use Theresa's layout-totally awesome! Love the colors you've selected too. Well done.

  4. I love this idea and the color choices! I'll be playing this one for sure!

  5. I unfortunately cannot take the credit for the design of my card. I used a sketch from my Close To My Heart catalogue. I was in a hurry (school consumes my life) and I simply love the stamp set so I borrowed the idea. Gotta give credit where credit is due. Smiles ladies.

  6. Great line up ladies!! You all did a fabulous job with the challenge!

  7. OH YUMMY! I love those colors together and haven't used thim in a cool minute! Thanks Mel...I'll get to working right now!
