OWH Sketch Challenge 150

Standard

Operation Write Home has a new sketch challenge up – #150.

Here’s my take –

The actual sketch calls for an oval shape but I don’t have an oval die. I looked around my ever so messy crafting table and saw the 4 pack of stained glass window Stampin’ Up stamps that I got at a thrift a few weeks ago. Decided that the Iris stamp was a good all year image and the measurements were similar to the oval in the sketch. Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Strathmore Watercolor 140lb paper. Colored it with Spectrum Noir markers in DG3, LV3, CT4, IG6 and TB3.

Background papers are TPC Studio Black Shimmer – I used the front and back sides. Purple strip is Vellum. Sentiment is TPC Studio Secret Garden in Memento Paris Dusk on Wausau Fleck cardstock.

(This also works for the December ODBD Challenge – create a card that features flowers.)
