Sketch #105 and the MWT

I've got a long "to do" list so I'm going to keep this post short. This is for the Midweek Challenge of Black & White with a Pop of Color.


Thank You Stamp: EK Success - Edge Punch: Martha Stewart
Text Paper: An Old Dictionary bought at a used bookstore

This one is based on this week's Sketch Challenge #105. After seeing Allison's second kicked-up card I decided that I wanted to take it up a notch too. I had just finished coloring a few of these digi stamps (you can get Sandy's OWH State Stamps here) so it worked out perfectly.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Both of your cards are terrific. I love the old dictionary idea. I too favor text backgrounds, though it seems I don't use them as much as I would want! Love the state digi stamp on the sketch 105 card. I like the kicking it up a notch idea too. I may have to use that Mojo! Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown Challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

Hi Paula! Love both of your gorgeous cards, especially the elegant black ribbon on the first one. But they are equally beautiful!!

Carol L said...

Great job on BOTH cards! I just love the look of the printed background on #1, and that image on #2 looks so pretty the way you colored it! NJ!

Ruby Craft said...

Love the details in your cards. (I checked, but no image for Georgia yet.) Your Bluebonnets are beautiful and the red white and blue theme really sets them off. Great idea for the dictionary text. Both cards are lovely.

Paula, Both of your cards are true winners. Each beautiful in their own right. I think that dictionary page is just a fabulous background and your coloring of that image on your second card is perfect. I just love them both.

Paula, I really like both of these cards! Your coloring is fabulous.

(And I hear you on the to-do list... mine is killer!)

I really love both of your cards Paula! Your coloring is beautiful. I love the sentiment on the first card and the your take on the sketch. They are both wonderful! TFS

I love both cards but the second one is my favorite. I need to check out those state stamps.

Lee Ann said...

I love both of your cards. I am particularly drawn to the sketch challenge card- how you colored the digi, the embossing and the paper choice. It all works beautifully.

Jennifer said...

Paula, i like both cards, they are great....I always like red, white and blue :) Love that you have a counter on your blog for the cards sent in to OWH.

Julie said...

Beautiful cards as always, Paula! Love the embossing on the base of your sketch card, and that digi works perfectly for the sketch! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!
