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.
