Sketch #234

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! 

Today's sketch details can be found on Operation Write Home's Stars & Stamps blog, just click here:

So sorry for the picture quality (or lack of it). I am learning how to use a new camera and for some reason it just is not as clear as it should be.

I created this card using papers from a DCWV stack called "All About Boys" and a piece of Bazzil Swiss Dot. The sentiment is from Sandy Allnock's set "Ciara & Sandy", the stars are from Recollections, and the scalloped circles were cut using Cricut's Elegant Edges cartridge. 

Thank you for stopping by!

OWH Sketch #233 & Saturated Canary "Sweet Cottage"

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! Here is today's sketch from Operation Write Home:

You can find details about the sketch challenge here:

I created this card using a digital image from Saturated Canary called "Sweet Cottage" and you can find it here to purchase:

I colored it up with Spectrum Noir markers, used papers from My Mind's Eye (Wood grain and peach floral papers from "Tangerine" and the green oval one from "Lost & Found Breeze".)  The olive green card stock everything is mounted on is actually Bazzill "Dots" (can't see any of those dots, but it was the only thing I had that would match...felt like I was wasting my favorite Bazzill.)

I distressed the edges of everything with a scissor edge and then inked them slightly with "Kiwi Slice" from Fun Stampers Journey ink. 

The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and the little hearts were punched with a $1 heart punch from Michael's. At first I punched them in a light peach floral to match the other paper, but they did not show up at all, want to see?

I had all ready glued them down so I pulled out my Spectrum Noir and colored them with DR1, DR4,  and a little DR7 for a shadow. I think that works much better, do you?

Here is a close up of the cottage because I just love coloring this thing.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sketch Challenge #232 OWH

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! Today's OWH sketch challenge details can be found here:

The sketch looks like this:

I created this card using a Saturated Canary digital image called "Books & Bedhead" and you can find it here:
                                                                 Saturated Canary 

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye "Tangerine" 6x6 paper pad and I layered on orange and cream card stock. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts OWH set called "Year Round Sentiments" and you can find it here:   Hero Arts

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, stamped the sentiment in "Orange Slice" colored  ink from Fun Stampers Journey and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I distressed all the edges in this same ink, added a little satin ribbon and three little brads (the last three flower brads in my stash that have matched nothing else I have worked on and I was thinking they would be sitting in my stash forever....I feel like they have finally been liberated, lol.)

Thank you for stopping by!
