Operation Write Home - Sketch 153
Topic: Sketch Challenge

I did the next few sketches in a series, using a technique I found on Splitcoaststampers called Stamp Etching. There is a tutorial at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/stampetching/

Basically, you start with an outline floral, stamped in black on white paper. Then a marker or fine pen is used to flick in parallel lines from the inside and the outside of the petals to make them look like a woodcut or etching.

OWH sketch 153 was the first one up to use one of these drawings on.


My first inclination with these graphics was to add red to the stark black and white. I selected a bold stripe, a solid red, and red and white lettered strips.

I had to work with the size of the die that I had so the panel is not exactly that prescribed, nor is the red border around it.


I wanted another touch of red so used a marker to color in some of the petal curls and stamens. I also used a black fine marker to add a little border around the illustration, but under the leaves.
