Operation Write Home, We R Memory Keepers and Hero Arts
It is Sunday - time for the weekly sketch on Stars and Stamps - Operation Write Home's card blog. I always like to jump start my creativity on Sunday with this sketch. It comes live at 6 and most of the time I have had my first cup of coffee by then and I am ready to play.
The paper grouping is from We R Memory Keepers. It makes a great masculine card. I chalked around the edges of all the paper with blue to set it off a little. I find that chalk sometimes gives a softer look than inking the edges. The cloud is a die cut and coordinating stamp from Hero Arts that is made for Archievers. It looked empty in the middle so I added Hello - this is a very old stamp I have - but I think it adds a little extra to the card. Hello - always thinks of you.
And of course, the top strip was not on the sketch but it was in the paper pad, it was calling to me to be used, and I liked how it added the final touch to the card. I seem to always have to tweak a sketch a little.
Well off to have that second cup of coffee. Found out on facebook I need a get well card - so I think this paper will work great along with a motorcycle stamp.
