Our Daily Bread Designs/OWH August Challenge

Every month Our Daily Bread Designs offers to pay the shipping for two boxes of cards being sent to deployed heroes if at least 50 card makers participate in their monthly challenge with Operation Write Home.  This month's challenge is to create a card using brown, green and pink.  

You can find more details about the challenge here:Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge

I selected this image from Saturated Canary called "Dreads." You can purchase this lovely image here:

I colored her up with Spectrum Noir LG3 & LG5 for her sweater, and Copics E44, E43, & E42 for her skirt. Her sash is PP1, PP3, PP5 & LG5. Her hair was colored with so many markers, both Spectrum Noir and Copics, in an attempt to get a softer look and I forgot to keep track, so sorry. Her skin was GB8 with TN3 over it.  I added a little Glossy Accents to her eyes to make them shine. 

I layered her on a little aqua green Bazzill dotted paper and some Brown card stock.  I also added May Arts "Mesh" ribbon and then did a little hand stitching around the edge using a Lizbeth variegated thread called "Root Beer Float".  

The sentiment was made using Hero Arts "Fanciful Swirls Alphabet Stamps" and I added a little dimensional adhesive behind it. I used Craftsmart pigment ink in Chocolate Brown to distress the edges around all the papers. 

Thank you for stopping by!
