I just had to try my hand at the CAS38 Sketch challenge again. And since so many of you also wanted to see more cards for children, well, this fish set from Hero Arts seemed appropriate!
The images were colored with Prisma colored pencils, with just a hint of shading for added interest. I wanted to put glitter on the card, but it's destined to go to the troops, who don't need to deal with glitter. So I settled for bling. I thought it would be a cool card for a soldier to send to his/her child as an invitation to email them or write them with all they had been doing. A lot of the soldiers do have access to email, and what a treat it would be to get one from your child!
Do you ever wonder what I do with all these cards I make? Well, I sent 175 cards just the other day to a Sue Salsburg, who sends them to the America troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. I also recommend Operation Write Home to anyone interested in supporting the troops. It's an amazing effort that does amazing things for morale overseas. But please don't use glitter. For obvious reasons, glitter, camoflage, and bright sunlight are not a good combination.
I'm still chuckling over the fact that Karen C and I came up with basically the same idea for our Love Birds cards for this challenge. There are some awesome cards already posted for the challenge. Go check them out on Jennifer's blog and get inspired!
