Operation Write Home - sketch 192
Topic: Sketch Challenge

It all started so innocently...


I had an uncolored image on watercolor paper. I trimmed it to the inner edges of the design and colored it with bright Distress Markers.

It was too stark so I misted it with water. This not only caused the colors to blend but made a couple of splotches on the background. Dried it with a heat gun... darkened the background with Distress Ink... used black ink to spatter... then I used a fine line marker to redraw the entire image. FINALLY, I like it.

I chose papers that echo the lines and angles of the image. I distress them with sponged ink and assembled the card.

The image was originally a 'postage stamp' so I redrew that motif around it and colored it with W7 Copic Marker.


I found in my sticker file a sheet of faux stamps that came as a 'fund raiser' junk mail enclosure. They made a suitable item for embellishment.
