Sketch Challenge for Stars and Stamps Blog

Happy Wednesday.

Operation Write Home, in addition to its news blog, has a crafting blog called Stars and Stamps. The Sketch challenge for this week is #14 provided by Shirley Swoope:

I used this Sketch to make "Such a Garden Angel".

Materials List:

  • Stamps: Garden Angel - Rubbernecker Stamps; If the Halo Fits Set (Sentiment) and Polka Dots & Paisley- Stampin' Up
  • Burgundy CS
  • Decorative Paper - Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday Collection
  • Blush Blossom CS- Stampin' Up for the tags
  • Offray Ribbon
  • Die Cut Tags: Tags, Scallop Combo #2 from Sizzix
  • Eyelet Punch - Stampin' Up
  • Inks: Memento- Tuxedo Black and New Sprout; SU- Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Blush Blossom, Creamy Caramel; Marvy - Pale Violet
I stamped both Tags with the background stamp (using Blush Blossom ink)from the Polka Dots set. Then I stamped the angel in black and water colored it. I distressed the edges with New Sprout ink. Here is a detail of the tag.

Because this card will be sent to Operation Write Home, I will put a liner on the inside so that a service person can write a nice long letter to a loved one.

I Hope you are having a great day. I has been cold here. I am waiting for it to warm up a little today so I can get out there and work on the garden. Still a ton of work to do......
