Today, I made a couple cards using Operation Write Home Sketch #168. I like the idea of using up some scraps of printed paper. Since I had scraps all over my messy work table already, I just went ahead and used some of them:
The second card didn't quite follow the sketch measurements because that tiny scrap of striped paper was all I had left. It still worked just fine. In fact I like this one better than the first one, probably because I like the bright colors.
I guess the colors got me going, because it doesn't get much brighter in colors than this last card! This elephant is adorable and lends itself well to embellishments. I used lots of jewels and Ranger Glossy Accents. I really, really wanted to add more sparkle. I know that glitter is a no-no on OWH cards, but I'm not sure about Stickles. There was some discussion on OWH about Stickles, but I don't know what the final decision was.
I just finished cleaning my craft room, really cleaning. I figured hubby doesn't really want to look at a mess the whole time I'm gone. It looks great, but I'll probably never find things again! I will have serious stamping withdrawl for the next two weeks. I did manage to get my whole box of OWH cards for the month finished in two weeks, so I'm good until I get back.
