That blue feeling didn't have me feeling all that creative, and when I looked at this week's Operation Write Home challenge sketch, I almost decided not to try it because it seemed to require more of a mix of papers than I normally use. However, Kathryn's cards are always inspiring, so I thought about it some more and decided I could flip it and use the various papers to echo the sentiment.
The cardstock, which I embossed with my Cuttlebug, is from DCWV, the bright paper's from Echo Park and the sentiment, which I inked with Stampin' Up's Calypso Coral, is from Inkadinkado. I hope it will cheer someone up as much as it cheered me up to make it!
Pleased with how it turned out (though if I were to make it again, I'd also put a narrow lime green border beneath the coral cardstock), I decided to try the sketch the the original way:
The paper is BoBunny; the sentiment is from Hero Art's OWH collection; the dark cardstock and the ink are Stampin Up's Early Espresso. The lighter cardstock, which I embossed with my Cuttlebug, is from DCWV.
And one more:
Again, the cardstock, which I embossed with my Cuttlebug, is from DCWV; the paper's from BoBunny (and matches two large butterfly pictures hanging on our Lip Gloss coral breakfast nook wall); and the sentiment, which I stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia, is from the fantabulous Penny Black.
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit! I appreciate and love reading all comments! I hope readers will return for Teaser Tuesday, where I share excerpts from upcoming books. There's also Photo Friday, and, depending on my writing schedule, additional challenge cards during the week.
