Happy Sketch Sunday everyone!
Operation Write Home's sketch #217 looks like this:
You can find details about the sketch challenge here:
Here is my card:
The background papers are from The Paper Studio's "Cape Cod" 4.5"x6.5" paper pack purchased at Hobby Lobby, I layered everything on black and red card stock, and used an "I Love You" sentiment from Stampabilities (#C1102).
I used a piece of twine to make the knot and colored it blue and red with my Spectrum Noir markers. The boat was cut using the Cricut "Going Places" cartridge. And last, I added three silver brads in the top right corner.
Here is another card I worked on this week using a John Wayne stamp from Stampers Best.
I stamped the image in Memento "Rich Cocoa" and used Recollections Clear Embossing Powder on it to give it a little more texture. The denim background paper is from Karen Foster and is called "Denim Pockets", the gold stars on navy is called "Freedom" from Reminisce, and I added a little bit of red bandana paper from my stash (unknown company.) I layered everything on dark brown card stock and distressed all edges using the Memento Rich Cocoa. The sentiment is from Sandy's Allnock's new "Trigger & Skyler" Ciara's Friends line and seemed perfect for John Wayne.
So sorry, the John Wayne stamp has been discontinued.
I coiled up a bit of twine, wrapped it with a little DMC thread to secure it in the middle, and used Alene's Tacky Glue to adhere it to the card. I also stamped and embossed a couple of stars in the corners and added brads on the sentiment tag.
Thank you for stopping by!
