OWH July 4th VCMP Challenge #6

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The sixth challenge is hosted by JoAnn Ross – make 2 cards for winter, one using Christmas colors and one using colors that would allow it to be used the whole season.

I decided to use the same OWH Sketch – #191 – that she used for her cards, but I changed the order of the layers so that the banner could be for my sentiments. I’m also entering this card into the Shopping Our Stash / The Jingle Belles Challenge – Use an item that has been in your stash for at least one year. One year, how about ten? This DCWV paper is from 2004ish.

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The fifth challenge is hosted by Beth at BunnyScrap – make a card using a colorful background that you’ve created with ink, paint or scraps.

This worked out well for me – my first attempt at Challenge #2 ended up being more purple than red and blue so I put it aside to make another. That first attempt is going to be front and center here.

This is the technique that Tim Holtz featured in his 12 months of tags – June.

Standard

Operation Write Home is having a Virtual Card Making Party for the 4th of July.

The second challenge is hosted by Michelle at Caffeine & Stamps – make a Thank You card with a bonus points if you make your own fireworks using spray inks.

Well, I don’t have any spray inks and I don’t want to buy any spray inks because I don’t need to find another product that I MUST HAVE IN ALL THE COLORS BECAUSE REASONS… Ahem. Excuse me. It’s OK, everything is fine.

Anyway, because I don’t have any spray inks, I decided to use the technique that Tim Holtz featured in his 12 months of tags – June. The card below is my second attempt because I got very into putting red and blue all over the stencil  for the first card and then ended up with a lovely purple and white design… It might make an appearance on another post.
