For this week's OWH Sketch Challenge at the Operation Write Home blog, I decided to try out my new Hero Arts bicycle stamp. This was at impulse buy the other day at Michael's. I forget why I stopped in there - there was SOMETHING I really needed - and ended up buying a couple of stamps I didn't KNOW I needed! Well, hey, they were half price - and I saved $10.00!
For this card I used a sponge, a scallop shape, and SU Bashful Blue ink to stamp the cloud effect in the background. For the grass, I sponged some SU Pear Pizzaz, and stamped some blades of grass with a stamp from the SU Gnome Sweet Gnome set. I colored the flowers and basket with copics. The background papers and sentiment are also from SU. I backed everything in black, and added a scrap of gold ribbon and a gold banner with black pearls for a bit of pizzazz.
Now that I've got a card finished for my OWH box, I'll be getting back to a project I started yesterday - wrangling my scraps! I need to make more space in my craft room for those "must have" impulse buys!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
