Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #161

Whew!  Another sketch challenge at Operation Write Home  (OWH) accomplished!  I have managed to keep up with the challenges at OWH in keeping with my New Year's crafting resolution!  I just got my new Up, Up and Away kit from Club Scrap.  I am in love with the stamps in this set!

I stamped the balloon in Stampin'Up Real Red on Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper.  It picks up all the fine details of this stamp.  I made a mask and then used Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Broken China around the balloon.  Then I cut it out with my new Spellbinders Labels 28.  I also inked the sentiment paper with Broken China and then stamped the sentiment.  Here is the sketch I used from OWH.

Products Used:
Stamps:  Club Scrap Up, Up and Away Borders and Backgrounds, Greetings
Ink:  Stampin'Up Real Red, Ranger Jet Black Archival, Tim Holtz Distressed Broken China
DSP and Cardstock:  Club Scrap
Ranger Specialty Stamping Paper

Happy Crafting!
