One Stop Craft Challenge 16 - Sharon's sketch

I've made a card using Sharon's sketch for , which I found quite a challenge to work with :).

The sketch looks great, but I struggled to get everything in without making my card huge! I started with a lovely Crate Paper from the Stamp Attic, a soft almost Japanese style with branches. I had a co-ordinating paper that I stamped my image on, an Inkandinkado bird on a branch. I used tapestry stamps round the edge and mounted it on a piece of Glimmer Misted card.

The reverse of the paper went across the card with some lace behind it, more glimmer misted paper, a co-ordinating paper and a goldy-yellow paper are set at an angle. I've inked up some small white paper flowers for the bottom corner and stamped the sentiment directly onto the card using brown Stazon.


  1. This is beautiful Anne. I think the trick with this sketch is the size of the image you choose. You've really done it justice here. I love the oriental feel to your card. Thanks for joining the One Stop Craft Challenge.
