Tuesday Morning Sketches #286

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday, we have a new Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge for you today. Melissa is picking one of her past favorite sketches this week, and our sponsor is Sami Stamps.

I went with a masculine card for this challenge, I broke the seal on a new My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad. I printed off two plain ties and stamped a pattern on it then fussy cut it them out and doubled layered them with foam tape. I added some texture to the circle and finished by adding the sentiment and half pearls.


Supplies: White and black card stock, Designer Paper – My Mind's Eye, Sami Stamps - Plain Tie, Woodware-What a Catch, Fiskars - Hexagon Sentiments, misc punch, embossing folder, die cuts, pearls.

The design team has created some wonderful samples, stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to take a look.

Thank you for stopping by,
