Don't you just love the CAS style of this week's OWH Sketch?! I loved it so much that it inspired two cards. :)
Card 1: You Add COLOR
I recently ordered some fabulous MFT stamps and dies. They are so fabulous that I used them right away to make the television cards in my two previous posts. But, I decided that the "COLOR" sentiment in the stamp would work really well with this OWH sketch.

strips on front of card.
Love those Distress-Inked strips on the front! To create them, I inked up a rectangle of watercolor paper, as shown to the right. I started with mustard seed in the middle, going up with mowed lawn and salty ocean, and then going down with spiced marmalade and fired brick. After inking the rectangle, I cut the three strips and mounted them on black cardstock so that these pretty colors would pop off the card.
To carry the color theme to the inside of the card, I inked up the edge of a rectangle of watercolor paper. I then mounted it as the layer between two black cardstock rectangles, as shown above. Finally, a piece of white paper was added for one of OWH heroes to write a note home.
After doing all of this, I realized I could have just added a inked strip to the left side of the card's interior. Live and learn!
I'm going to link up this card to the following challenges:
- the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes blog challenge,
- and the Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday blog challenge.
Card 2: U.S.A.
Of course, what's an OWH sketch without an Any Hero card?!
Here's today's sketch-inspired Any Hero card. Thought these ribbons were too pretty to not be a part of this card's focal point. Just wish I would've placed them a little closer together. This was the first sketch card I made, so I kind of messed up on that part. Thinking our heroes won't mind quite as much as I do. :)
April 1 - April 21
Short and sweet today. Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
