I took sometime yesterday to get a start on the sketch challenge. My #2 son has a birthday next week and I need to get his card mailed off so it will get to him on time at college. I must of bounced back and forth for a few hours before I decided to stay with the sketch and how I was going to put it together. I had it all stamped and laid out and then someone threw the mail on my desk and whoosh pieces were every where. So when I got up this morning I decided to start gluing things together before I had to run the boys to instrument lessons. The eagle was stamped and then run through the Big Shot with the die. I have had the clear rectangle die for a while and have never used it. Boy, was it easy! I could see the image so I knew the image would be centered. I stamped another eagle and then cut around him as close as I could get. I layered it as perfect as I could on top on the on in the rectangle with Dimensionals cut to fit. I do not think there was an edge that I did not sponge, as usual. I do need to play with the Letterpress plates more. I read somewhere that different papers make a difference...just need to give them a try. Off to get this in the mail before I run the boys to basketball practice.
