Today's OWH Sketch was inspired by a card made by Jean E. of Garden Grove, CA. Jean made so many beautiful cards for OWH. Please click here to read more about this wonderful lady. The Any Hero card below is made in Jean's memory.
|We R Memory Keepers Red, White, & Blue|
cardstock: AC white, blue, rusty red; Bazzill background blue; ??? background black
Recollections brads; 3 D glue dots
The dp is one of those busier sheets that I typically struggle with using. So, I kept the rest of the card really simple with solid color cardstock and simple brads. It's hard to imagine a card without any Distress Ink inks or core paper -- or stamped images. But, here it is.
It seemed a little odd to use black on the card, but the dp wasn't popping quite enough against the red base.Now, I'm thinking that maybe I should have put some black behind the 4 red/blue squares.
I'm also thinking these 4 squares should be a little to the right of where they're placed. But, the brads go through the squares and white strip -- and the white strip is adhered with six 3D glue dots. So, that white strip and 4 squares aren't moving anywhere. :)
I also wish the color of the blue cardstock appeared truer to its actual color. It is far closer to the blue in the dp than it appears here.
Hoping to work on a Father's Day card this afternoon.
Have a great week! Thanks for visiting and happy scrappin'!
