Operation Write Home - sketch 126
Topic: Sketch Challenge
Just like yesterday, I had a bunch of ideas on using another sketch. This time it is OWH 126:
I decided I wanted to use an embossed panel as the feature for this sketch and selected four of them.
First, I used hot pink with the heart blocks folder. I distressed it with 'old paper' ink to make the embossing stand out more. I bordered this in purple and added a purple chevron background along with three plain purple strips. The strips got some faux stitching with white gel pen.
Next I embossed the bamboo folder on a cream cardstock. I used Distress Markers like watercolors to color up the parts of the bamboo. T carry the Asian theme further, I selected papers with geometric prints in tan and Chinese red. The feature panel is banded in red and the sentiment is stamped on the same red and popped up on foam tape.
I used the star folder to emboss a red cardstock. I then used the 'picket fence' Distress Marker to color the raised areas of the stars. It was a little stark so I used 'old paper' Distress Ink on a blender to tone it down. Red and tan papers are used for background and bordering while a blue print is used for the strips. I colored a sentiment stamp with 'picket fence' marker and huffed on it before stamping on blue cardstock. This block is popped up on foam tape.
This one is my favorite. A floral corner border was embossed onto white cardstock and toned with Distress Ink. This was banded in green to coordinate with a green background and green strips. A simple sentiment stamped on green is popped up on foam tape.
I shall try to restrain myself from making so many multiples... unless I come to a really awesome sketch.
