Operation Write Home Sketch #34 Challenge

These cards were all made for this week's Sketch Challenge over at Operation Write Home's Stars & Stamps blog. 

This first one followed exactly - using the yellows.  The ribbon image is from The Stamping Boutique.    I added some yellow stickles to the sentiment panel for a subtle brad effect.  All were colored with Copics . 

This second one is also from The Stamping Boutique.  I love the simplicity of the eagle.... 'nuff said.  I added a dot of crystal accents to his eye - looks very cool in real life.  I added some thread wrapped around the horizontal panel before matting up on dimensionals.

This third one - I can't find the artist where I got it from, I apologize.  I will investigate further & if I find it will post it here.  For the background, I used the wax paper resist technique - ran the wax paper through an embossing folder then ironed off onto a sheet of glossy card stock before sponging all over with brown to create the wood.  I also used some faux stitching & faux paper piercing around the panels before popping them up on dimensionals.

Please stop by Operation Write Home's Stars and Stripes blog to see what else is going on for this upcoming weekend, to commemorate September 11th.

Thanks for peeking in ... Have a GREAT Labor Day - Stay Safe!
