Operation Write Home Sketch #61
Here is my take this week's sketch #61 over at Operation Write Home. I'm making a dozen of these cards to send in my first box to OWH. You can't really see it well in the photo, but the cardstock is ribbed and I love that it is white on the backside. No need to add a liner. I used a heat set gem by the sentiment. The flowers were solid yellow so I used a Copic marker to darken the inside and feathered out towards the ends of the petals. They are not as bright in real life as they appear in the picture. I used Glossy Accents to adhere the flowers and the pearl inside the flowers. That stuff is pretty strong, so they should stay in place through all the shipping. The ribbon is some paper ribbon I have in my stash, not sure what brand or where I got it. I love the retro paper from K&Company's Super Paper Pad. It's one of my favorites. I'm also entering this in Cooking With Cricut's Challenge #21, using two shades of green. Thanks for stopping by.
