Played along in this week’s sketch over at Operation Write Home.

To give the sentiment a little dimension, the paper and bar section of the typewriter was stamped a second time.  The sentiment was then stamped on it and cut out.  This small section of the image was then adhered over the complete image of the typewriter.

But there was a problem!  After closer examination of the sketch, I realized that I had NOT followed it correctly.

What to do?  Try again, of course!  LOL

This is such a great sketch.  Really loved it (both versions!)  hehe

If you make any cards for OWH and have their name stamp, don’t forget to stamp it on the back of each card you send.

Happy Crafting!
