Our Creative Corner - Sketch

The challenge over on OCC this week is a fabulous sketch. Why not pop over and see the excellent examples created by the DT. I've chosen an Oriental theme for my card today just for a wee change. I'm trying to use up stash and ink stamps that have not seen ink or not inked up in a while.
This blossom stamp was a freebie in the Craft Stamper magazine super wee stamp and i will be using this more often. the blossom branch stamp is from Inkadinkadoo. i inked it using Marvy Le plume II pens so that is was already coloured when I stamped it. Great effect especially for flowers. Well I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far, hubby and I are deep in discussion designing a craft area in our bedroom for me with ample storage for my ever growing stash. I'm all excited and yes easily pleased too. Off for a cuppa and to start my Penny black card and ink up some new stamps.

Here are the items I used for the card:

Stamps - Blossom branch by Inkadinkadoo, Blossom free with Craft Stamper, Sentiment Penny Black
Medium - Marvy Le Plume II pens in Plum and Dark Brown
DP - Simply Elegant by Papermania
Tools - Fiskars threading water punch
