OWH Challenge #2


Hello! I decided to make some cards this afternoon so I thought I would also post on the blog. I made this card for the Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #2. The sketch had a 2 inch strip down the left hand side of the card with a square in the middle that measured 2.5 x3.5. Finally, the sketch included a ribbon on the top. 

Although we have had this stamp for a while, I thought it would be fun to use it for this challenge. Unfortunately, I do not remember who made the stamp. I used colored pencils to color in the birds and blue Pebbles Inc. chalk for the sky. The chalk gives it a very delicate look which is nice for the sky. I then mounted the the stamp on Bazzil red and pearlized yellow paper. Around Thanksgiving, Robin and I won a prize at a local Scrapboking store that included a bunch of different papers. One of the sheets in the grab-bag was a piece of yellow and red check paper from Sassafras. The pattern is known as 'Daisy Dots'. I used this paper as the 2 inch strip for the background.  I then used a piece of beige ribbon to top off the design. The sentiment is from A Muse Artstamps. I used the same red paper that I used for the bird stamp to back the sentiment. Finally, I used glossy accents 3D liquid to add some dimension to the birds. Although it may be hard to see, the glossy accents makes it so that they are 3D which is really cool. I hope you enjoy the card!
