Sketch Challenge #208 Operation Write Home


Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! 

Today's challenge is sketch #208 and you can find details about it here:

Here is the sketch:

I wanted to try to use this Disney character paper (that I had far too much of….) so I cut the little squares down to fit the dimensions of the sketch and layered everything on black and red card stock. I added little white stitching detail using a fun UniBall Signo Broad white pen and the sentiment was stamped using Hero Arts's "Find Joy" sentiment stamp set.  And last I added a little black ribbon with white stitching on it. 

I did have to alter the sketch by removing the little circle on the lower left because it was covering Goofy's face too much, and since I am all ready covering two of the characters with the other circle and sentiment, it just did not look right to cover Goofy.  Perhaps this was not the best paper for this sketch, but I thought I would try it. 
:)

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I think this is a great kid-friendly card. They could try to guess who is covered up! I have a whole bunch of Disney paper waiting to be used. I will have to try this or another sketch. Hmmm - let's get the juices flowing!

    1. Thank you so much Carol! I never knew it was called saddle-stitched, thank you for the information (sometimes I end up calling everything a "thingy" because I don't know what else to call it so I love learning descriptive words.)

  9. Love this card! Don't let my forgetfulness keep you from stamping away from the house. I will make a list of the important stuff from now on and that way, I'll just forget something less important....
