I was asked to create a sketch for the challenge this time at Top Tip Tuesday and I had so much fun designing them I couldn't stop, so I made two! This card is based off of sketch 1 and thanks to one of our Sponsors, Karen's Doodles, I decided to use Movie Date as the theme. I've colored only certain aspects of the image, keeping focus on the location; the theater. I think they turned out pretty cute keeping them black and white. The additional sketch elements are free downloads that I printed and cut out from clker.com. A few additional stickle dots and a couple of tickets from the Tim Holtz tag collection and I've got a great invitation for a date night out!

Clean and Simple Sketch 2
This is my rendition of the sketch and I've used a free images printout from Magic Moonlight Studio under the category of Butterflies and Birds. I designed this by running the card through the BigShot with Fiskar's lined embossing plate. Inked it up with TH Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and lightly spritzed with lavender scented water. Once dry, I crosshatched Picket Fence Distress Paint randomly over the top. Heated it up with the heat tool and then sanded down various sections. I printed out two copies of the butterflies, one to lay flat and one to take flight atop the other. After completing that, I clear embossed a butterfly from Stampin' Up's Kindness Matters stamp set and then stamped the sentiment over that with TH Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The last touch was with assorted colors of Stickles on the butterflies and that's it!
I hope you've enjoyed the cards. There are so many more wonderful creations at TOP TIP TUESDAY from the other DT's and if you find yourself inspired, I'd love to see what you do with the sketches. You can either do one or the other or both!! It's totally up to you.
Thanks for stopping by and keeping up with my longwinded post!
Hugs and Happy Stamping...
