Operation Write Home - sketch B14
Topic: Sketch Challenge

When I used OWH bonus sketch B14 it spiralled off in a whole different direction than I had envisiioned - but in a good way!


See, the sketch is such a quiet, unassuming thing- don't you think?

As soon as I chose the illustration I knew I was going to have some bold colors that would stand up to it. So I chose the blue 'pearls' paper to surround it and bring it up to the prescribed size.

The best red I had was the one covered in white hearts so that wash chosen next.

I had a hard time deciding what to use for the horizontal band as most things I tried looked just stuck on. I liked the red scallop but it was too close to the background so I cut the white scallop to surround it.

A gold heart sticker with a cutout area for the red to show through fit well with the sketch but the sentiment contained in an oval did not. I finally used a pre-stamped sentiment on a matching blue background and cut it as a continuation of the center block instead of offsetting it like the sketch.


The reds and the blues really do match in real life but you know how these cameras mess with the color.
