In honor of President's Day, Operation Write Home is hosting a Virtual Card Making Party on their blog. Over the course of today and tomorrow, 10 hostesses will post card making challenges on their blogs. All you have to do, is follow the instructions, create a card, and link it up. This is such a great way for me to get the mojo going and to create at least 10 more cards for our heroes.
First up, Erika challenged us to "get our zig on"... using the trendy chevron pattern to create a card. Here's my version...
I stamped the chevron background from the Paper Smooches Geo-graphic set in three shades of Hero Arts shadow Ink (soft pool, mid-tone navy, and mid-tone Green Hills. The sentiment and little alien are from the Paper Smooches Little Fella set and colored with Copic markers. You can't tell from the photo but popped him up on foam adhesive and I coated his eyes with glossy accents to make them sparkle a bit.
Next up on the challenge, Misty has challenged us to create a "critter" card. I've been waiting to ink up a stamp of our OWH mascot, Ciara, so that will be my critter. Unfortunately, I have to go to work soon...so the challenges may have to wait a bit. The links will stay up until February 25th, so there is plenty of time to create along with the hostesses. Please join the fun!
Thanks for stopping by.
