Topic: Sketch Challenge
This is the next-to-last sketch being published by Operation Write Home The sketch actually came out on July 11 and I made TWENTY cards from it on that same day. Other postings needed to come first so these are just now up in the queue.
Here is OWH sketch 258:
I first went through my file of pre-stamped sentiments and selected twenty that were close to or larger than the specified main panel. Then I went through my scraps of strips of patterned paper and pulled lots of them. I sorted through them, selecting three to go with each sentiment panel. These were trimmed to 1 x 3 inches. Next was the selection of a background paper for each and, finally, a base card color that would also double as a border for the sentiment. The last step was to choose an embellishment (most of these were from a set of chipboard stickers).
All that was left was to, one by one, cut the pieces, trim the flags, and assemble the cards.
The first completed uses a yellow sentiment panel, shades of yellow printed flags, aqua borders and a yellow-gold embellishment.
Love that script background.
