ODBD Challenge for Operation Write Home

09_14 ODB Challenge

Recently, I have become inspired by so many card makers whom I admire who using watercolors in new ways, especially to create colorful backgrounds. So I signed up for , my first-ever virtual class. This card was inspired by a simple technique to create a rainbow of color swatches, perfect for a newbie like me. Am posting this for this challenge to help send handmade cards to our deployed heroes.  Thanks for visiting today and if you’re a fellow card maker, please check out Operation Write Home for yourself.

OWH Sketch Challenge #165

wpid-2013-03-24_18-02-15_715.jpgJust made this card a couple of days ago following a stamptv.com video by Gina K. posted on March 15, 2013, which I modified by double-stamping the images with dye ink, then again with Versamark ink and embossed with iridescent ‘opal’ embossing powder to add some shine. Love the effect-hard to see here.” Fun coincidence that this worked out for this challenge. Having trouble posting the link to the video, but please check this fab blog full of inspiration!

OWH Midweek Throwdown Cards with Kids

Made this simple card that our troops can use to send a special boy or girl back home birthday wishes. Found manila tags at a teachers’ supply store going out of business which was the starting point.
