Is it already time for another MFP Oriental Sketch Challenge???? I guess it is.
But before I get on to my card, I want to thank Lis the StampSnob (lol....what a great username!!!) for becoming my newest follower. Here's that ginormous new-follower smile, especially for Lis!!!
And now about my card..... Since I've been joining in with the super-fun MFP Oriental Sketch Challenges, I've kept my eye open for Asian looking things in my stash and in thrift stores (my favorite!!) and I keep them together in one craft box. After I played with Perfect Pearls recently for this card, I had several leftover images and I thought this shimmery bird (stamp discontinued from Unity) looked suitably Oriental. So I used it for this challenge, along with scraps from recent cards that may or not be recognizable to my casual reader.
Here's this week's sketch that I followed. As you can see, I flipped it 90 degrees to make a horizontal card.
Here's an angled shot so you see the lovely gleam of the Perfect Pearls. Instead of the Perfect Medium that came with my PP, I used my el cheapo wimpy white stamp pad which is terrible as a white stamp pad, but wonderful as an embossing pad. (Ha! You get what you pay for!) I used the Biscotti pearl powder, because it always seems to show up as a pretty gold.....more so than the gold PP that I have! (shrug...crafting is such a mystery!.....)
Other supplies I used: DCWV cardstock - various, Graphic 45 scraps and Bird Song sticker, kind of a crinkly mulberry paper from my stash, and my favorite color of pearls - Want 2 Scrap - LeCreme. This color seems to blend with so many of the color palettes I use. Love them!!
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card. Your support by leaving comments and becoming followers means a ton to me!!! Have a lovely day!
