Sketch it.......

I made time today to stamp, so created a couple of cards for Sketch Challenges.
I made this for the Sketch at Mark's Finest Papers- for the Oriental Sketch Challenge #11.  I used TJ Wisped framed after stitching the circle panels together. For the sentiment, the LOVE was inked with a marker and stamped 5 times. Them, I inked the Kanji only and stamped it next to the LOVE. I made a little tassle using Gold metallic embroidery thread and attached it to the fan charm.

Next, I made a card for the Oriental Stamp Art Sketch Challenge 249. (Oriental Sketch Challenge is a challenge for the Yahoo Group Oriental Stamp Art).
  I used the TJ technique called 3D Gold ( and used the Inka Gold Paint again : )  ).  The dragonfly stencil I used is by T.S.C. Designs. I embossed the purple cardstock and highlighted it with Inka Gold. I added Inka Gold around the edges as well. The Washi paper has shimmer in it that you cannot see in the photo.
