Happy Sketch Sunday everyone!
Today's Operation Write Home sketch is #187 and you can find details about it here:
Here is the sketch:
I have been hoarding these papers, not wanting to use them for just anything because I really like them. The papers are from Graphic 45 (French Country Collection) and the small rectangle is from Reminisce (Festive Cake- the back side). Everything is mounted on a slate blue card stock.
The rooster is from a Dazzles set (Home Grown Stickers) from Hot off the Press.
The sentiment is from Stampers Best "Stud Puffin" stamp (one of the Operation Write Home Fund Raiser Stamps) and you can find it here:
The stitching was done with a brown DMC embroidery thread.
The ribbon is a plain white polyester from Michael's "Celebrate It" line (but it looks like a satin finish). I colored it the shade I needed with Spectrum Noir TB8. When my ribbon stash was getting out-of-control and a storage nightmare (by trying to have every shade), I decided to purchase more white ribbons and use my alcohol markers to color them whatever color I needed. Now things are so much more manageable. I will still purchase the special ribbons (multi-colored, crochet trims and such), but now things are fitting into my small space.
Just for fun (and to show that I do more than make cards all day.....), I snapped this little photo yesterday just to prove that I do go outside now and then:
This picture makes me want to purchase a butterfly stamp just so that I can color him up with Spectrum Noir color OR3.
Thank you for stopping by my little blog!
