Stars and Stamps sketch #21

Cool sketch, don't you think? For some reason it was an easy one for me which is always so nice.
Sandy, the president of Operation Write Home created a page of digi images for the Memorial Day Weekend blog hop including this sweet dog. Sandy's own Ciara was the inspiration for the digi and I wanted to give her a golden/red color. Long ago I made a bleached background sheet that I scanned and loaded on my computer. I used a piece of that scanned background to "color" Ciara. It was very fun! And today I pulled out an old piece of cardstock backed, dyed paper towel that I used for the background rectangles. The sentiment is a Studio G stamp colored with gel pen and clear embossed. It was a fun and relatively (for me) quick card.

Great card! It's so nice to see Sandy's adorable images being used and each time in a unique design.

Your coloring techniques are great. How about a died paper towel tutorial if we do a July 4th bloghop. That is intriguing.
