Wow - I have 2 blog posts today!
I just had to post my card for the Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps sketch challenge #20 and talk a little bit about the blog too!
I made my card using the sketch and used a real rubber stamp for the image today. The stamp is called American Girl by Dream Impressions. The stamp was lent to me by my friend Sheri, we met on the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend blog hop. She'd used this stamp on her card and I just loved it! I had to find out where she got it. She's done her homework and we believe it isn't available for sale anymore so she offered to let me borrow it.
I had some free time yesterday afternoon so I stamped and colored her with my Copic markers. The grass is colored with YG11, YG13 & YG17 then I spritzed a scrap of old washcloth with Copic blender solution and dabbed it on to kind of melt it all together. Looks kinda like grass now... I also discovered yesterday that those places on an image I'd like to keep white and my other colors have bled into them can be cleaned up with blender pen then after it's dried I used a white gel pen.
Okay, on to the OWH Stars & Stripes blog! Yesterday Sandy put in a new feature on the blog, it's a forum page. You can find it on the right side of the page, it says OWH Forum chat with cardmakers. Click on that button and go check it out, there's even a gallery for the cards we're making to send the troops.
How cool is that?!
