Our Creative Corner Challenge




I am a huge fan of the challenges from Our Creative Corner!! I always love to play along with these challenges. This week they have put together a sketch challenge.


I got the idea to use an Asian them. I stamped two of the Asian Painting stamps from Stampin'Up! (this set has been retired--but I love it!!) I punched out just a small circle from each one and colored them in with Stampin' Up!'s markers. Then I sponged the edges and layerd the circles on Tangerine Tango cardstock. I glues them on my trio of DP panels and it just seemed like something was missing. I pulled out my Exoctis Stitch stamp set and made some accent pieces--Old Olive leaves out lined with Always Artichoke and cut out along with a flourish stamped with Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock. Using my Choc. Chip marker I colored in the word only from my Kanji set, and did the same for the Chinies character in the upper right hand corner. I added this jeweled hat pin tied with Choc. Chip ribbon to finish it off. I love how it turned out and I know just the person who will be getting this card........Off to bed now!! It is not that late but I need an early bedtime!!

This card is lovely. I like that it's not traditional red/black and also like the way you've cut the images out. Kym xxx
