Hump Day - Yeah


Good evening - boy it is hard to get back into the swing of making cards after being on vacation.  Trying to work the rust off the mo jo.  I had seen this sketch site (Freshly Made Sketches) in the last few weeks so today I saw their weekly sketch and decided I would try it out.  It is a very versatile sketch and then comes the hard part - what paper to use, what stamp to use - sometimes that is almost overwhelming.  I finally settled on paper from this 6 x 6 pad from Simple Stories - Happy Day.

The stamp is from my collection - I have used it in the past.  It is by Hero Arts.  I stamped the image in VersaMark and a distress ink and then clear embossed.  It did not all clear emboss.  After the card was assembled I added a little color to the image with Copics. 

I think this will be a great card for my next Operation Write Home box.  Everyone enjoy the remainder of your evening - I suppose I need to figure out what I will wear to work tomorrow and wind things down for the evening.
