OWH sketch #171 which was posted this past Sunday. I already posted my card for the challenge, but I liked the sketch so much, that I dug into some long hoarded SU! retired dsp and made a set of cards with it. It's a great sketch to make use of those little bits of dsp we hang onto and don't quite know what to do with! I wanted to make a card for the Oozak challenge #14 which is "Anything goes with earthtones," and this is the result.
I'm not sure, but I'm thinking this dsp may have been called "outlaw" and I love the western look with all the gorgeous paisley patterns, stripes and earthy colors of rust, brown, tan & sage. I matted with some sage shadow (another retired color) and made some cards for OWH. The large star was cut with a Sizzix die, and the smaller star was done with a SU! punch, and assorted brads were placed in the centers. The sentiment is from the Hero Arts OWH stamp set and was done with Colorbox white ink.
Here's another one with a different dsp strip...
And here's the whole set....
It was really hard to let go of this awesome dsp, but no one can enjoy it while it's sitting in a bin here in my craft room. I'm feeling stronger as I gradually let go of these hoarded supplies I'm very fond of :)
And now I need to go rest my hand as I've developed a trigger thumb in the past several weeks. Apparently my thumb is not willing to work with my goal of finally putting these beautiful papers to use and making multiple card sets for OWH, but I'll rest my hand, and get back to it again soon. More later............thanks for stopping by today!
