Oriental Stamp Artists Sketch Challenge #195

I made a quick card for the OSA (that is a Yahoo group) Sketch challenge #195.  

  I had this Pulled Color background (learned it in a Technique Junkies newsletter). I used an image from a collage sheet and Washi paper from Art Neko.  I outlined the image and each border sheet with a line of Sakura Gelly Roll pen for shimmer.

CAS for me, isn't it???

I am slow at getting to blogs last week and this week- thanks for your patience- I have next week off and will be 'catching up' then!  My Mom went home from the hospital on Sunday and is on the mend- thanks for all of the well wishes and prayers : )

Thanks for stopping by!

This is stunning! Love the colors and it's amazing how a little thing like outlining with a Sakura pen gives such a pop to the card. Glad to hear your mom is getting better.
