OWH Sketch Challenge #174

Hello Everyone!!!!! It was so nice to have SO many visitors for the Operation Write Home Memorial Day Weekend Blog Hop! I really had such a positive experience for my first ever blog hop!!! Everyone was so wonderful with their comments on my card that it almost makes me wanna do a blog hop EVERY weekend!!! Ok, not quite, but I am looking forward to the next one.

In the meantime, perhaps I’ll share with you a card I made for OWH Sketch Challenge #174.  Here is the sketch for the challenge:

174

And before I show you the card I made from this sketch, I need to tell you about a card that inspired me during the blog hop.  The technique was one I had not tried before, so I couldn’t wait to try it.  Check out Sharon’s card here, in which she features the faux verdigris technique.  You can learn more about this technique here.  Another good tutorial to check out is the Faux Patina Tutorial by Angie Leach on Splitcoast Stampers.  You won’t be disappointed.  Anyway, here is the card I made using this technique.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card!

Peace Out,

Cindy

    From one Cindy to another, EXCELLENT card! I can just imagine how awe inspiring the Blog Hop must have been for you. Last year was MY first Blog Hop and it was magnificent. I wasn’t able to participate this year or even DO the hop but when life settles a little for me, I’ll go back and check it out. That’s another great thing about these Blog Hops, the info is out there forever…
